Hosmer Lake Kayak/SUP Outing Thursday
June 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This is a Kayak/SUP outing to Hosmer Lake. There are no rentals at this lake. You must bring your own kayak/SUP. We will meet at the boat launch area. Please carpool with fellow attendees if you can, as parking is limited at this site. Because parking is limited, attendance will be limited. The next lake scheduled is Sparks which will have a larger attendee limit.
This is a beautiful little lake, with a channel where you can see large trout and water lilies. You can venture around the lake, and also take a trip up a small stream to a little waterfall, which is a great stopping point for a snack before heading back for a fun little downstream ride.
To get to the boat launch at Hosmer, go beyond Elk Lake and then take a left on Elk Lake loop. DO NOT TAKE the first Elk Lake Loop, but the the one past (south) of the Elk Lake Resort. Also known as Forest Road 4525. There is a Hosmer Lake Sign as well.
Go to the boat launch area to unload, and then park. You will need a Forest Service parking pass. There is a restroom near the parking lot.
Please be ready to launch by 10 am. You must sign in before launching.
You will need a PFD, whistle and an invasive species permit if your boat is longer than 10 feet. You can purchase this permit online. It costs $10 for a two year permit. I have extra whistles but you must have your own pfd.
Bring sunscreen, hat, and dress for the weather. We will paddle for a couple of hours, making the trek to the waterfall if interested. Afterwards we will go to Elk Lake Lodge or elsewhere for lunch if interested.
Event will be cancelled for rain or wind.
This outing is for Bella members only. You must have a signed waiver on file to participate.
