Utah County Flying Sites

So guys, I'm trying to assemble a list of most of the popular flying sites in Salt Lake, Tooele, and Utah counties. I have the UVA field, and I've heard that folks in Utah Co. often fly at a place called "Four Corners".

What are the exact sites you're flying at? Ideally, if you can Google Earth it and give me exact longitude and latitude, or provide the text of a .KML or .KMZ file, that would be awesome. Even parks are good, as parks which tend to have enough space for one person to fly a parkie are often good for two, too

So far, the list I have is fairly sparse. I want to include sailplane, fuel, and electric fields if possible so that we have a pretty comprehensive list. Any takers?

The master list of sites is here:

And an example of the kinds of entries I make after I visit a flying site and write it up:

The sound of crickets, bullfrogs, and the whistling wind are very encouraging

Several of us have talked about your request and are not sure we want our active flying sites getting that kind of exposure. None of them are sanctioned fields. Most of them are only available at certain times. We're afraid if we get more people who don't know the situation showing up we may end up losing some of our flying sites.

That's the reason I haven't responded to your request yet, and I assume there are others who feel the same.
