There are several landing fields in front of launch. To access these areas, instead of turning right on NE 173rd Rd to go to launch, go straight on NE 1130th Ave 1.8 miles. Look for the main double gate on the right, with a small single gate in the fence that is not locked. The small gate is for our access if the main gate is not open.
