Grand Lake/Shadow Mountain Lake- Day Trip. Sunday, June 5th. Launch at 10am

June 5

 Be ready to launch at 10 am Sunday

We will start at Grand Lake and paddle through the inlet to Shadow Mountain Lake, hugging the east shoreline going south. At the far end of Shadow Mountain Lake, we can explore some of the islands that are not posted as raptor nesting areas. With a little luck we might see an Osprey catch a fish. We have seen elk, deer, eagles and moose on this paddle. It’s a beautiful place. On the way back we will paddle to the east end of Grand Lake. It’s fun to see the many boat houses, both rustic and modern, that line parts of the lake shore. Then we will take a short hike to Adams Falls. We will meet at the Grand Lake Town Beach and Dock, right across from the public restrooms on Lake Ave. It’s just a block south of downtown Grand Lake and there is plenty of free parking and no launch fees. Be ready to launch at 10am. Getting an early start is always a good idea to avoid potential afternoon winds. Bring a lunch as this trip typically takes 5 or 6 hours paddling around 8 miles. June is a great time for this trip. Adams Falls will be really kicking from spring runoff, and fewer tourists around than later in the summer. Hope to see lots of you there.
