Overview

Inspiration is a BEAUTIFUL site (hence the name) located in Orem, UT. It is very popular among local pilots due to it's proximity to the point, relaible conditions, and easy access. The soccer field LZ (1200 N, 800 E) is only about 20 mins from the Point, and launch is probably another 20- with a paved road all the way up.

Directions

From soccer field LZ (1200 N, 800 E): take 800 E South until you hit the main road. Turn left (East) and head into Provo canyon. Look for signs for "Squaw Peak", the first paved right hand turn once you enter Provo canyon. Follow that road all the way up to a turnaround/scenic lookout with a stone wall, this is the launch.

DUE TO THE LIMITED LZ OPTIONS, DO NOT FLY THIS SITE WITHOUT SOMEONE THAT IS FAMILIAR WITH IT!
