The Point of the Mountain is an incredible soaring site. It's an ancient natural sand peninsula between the Salt Lake and Utah valleys. From I-15, you can take the exit on either side of the point, head towards it and you will get there.
South Side Launch:
Take the Alpine exit #287, just south of the point. Head East, then turn immediately North onto the frontage road. Just as the frontage road nears the freeway again, there is a sign which says "Point of the Mountain soaring site, Utah Hang Glider Association". Turn right onto the dirt road and follow it up to the top of the bench. At the top turn left and you will be at the south side soaring site.
North Side Launch:
From the North -- Take the Bluffdale/Draper exit #291, just north of the point. Head South East, continue thru the 4 way stop on Highland Dr. Turn right onto Traverse Ridge Rd and then right again on Steep Mountain Drive. Stay on Steep Mountain Drive until it turns into a dirt road and you're there. It is adjacent to the last few homes on the hill.
