Windy Saddle Park is both a launching point for adventurers and a stopping point
not to be missed by sightseers.
Paragliders and hang gliders take flight from 7,059-foot Mount
Zion, mountain bikers churn along Chimney Gulch Trail and hikers have Beaver
Brook Trail to explore. The trail system connects to Lookout Mountain Nature
Center, which has its own interpretive trails. Cyclists dissect the park on
their climb up Lookout Mountain Road, a 4.3-mile ride of passage with a
1,200-foot elevation gain.
Drivers are rewarded with stunning views simply by parking at
the trailhead. The park lives up to its name, with strong drafts blowing down
from the Continental Divide. The wind conditions are renowned among hang gliders
and paragliders. These high-risk activities require fulfilling requirements from
States Hang Gliding & Paragliding Association and
completing a waiver.
