There are a couple of paragliding sites located in the CA foothills south of Auburn. One is located on BLM Land and the other is private property. Please contact one of the local pilots before flying either of these sites.
Here are site guides for both flying sites:
Coloma Paragliding site 1: Cronan Ranch
Coloma Paragliding site 2: Sagebrush
Local pilots have had fantastic flights out of both locations, sometimes landing as far away as Placerville, Cool, Pilot Hill, Foresthill, Pollock Pines and Shingle Springs.
