We spent the afternoon on Harris Hill watching the soar planes being pulled into the air. There is a great viewing area on the side of the hill with several swings and park benches. Very relaxing and beautiful.

My husband and daughter went up in the gliders and loved it. Everyone was very friendly and it was a no fuss attraction.

Check the prices for taking a glider ride and if you have it in your budget go for it! It is an experience like no other. Call ahead so you can make sure they are flying and you have a reservation.

The flight was nothing short of FANTASTIC!! The pilot gave a very informative narrative throughout the flight --- NOTHING compares to it :) I HIGHLY reccommend anyone giving it a try!!

Wonderful panoramic view of the Elmira/Horseheads area. Sit on the swings and look out over the area below. The soaring center is a great place to get a first hand view of the gliders.
