Added by Josiah Roe

Great exercise and exploration on the beautiful Lake Nacimiento in the heart of the Santa Lucia mountains.

Lake Nacimiento near Paso Robles, CA is a gorgeous reservoir used for kayaking, paddle boarding, and all manner of water sports.

To get there, from Highway 101 take the 24th street exit in Paso Robles west till it turns into Lake Nacimiento Drive. Lake Nacimiento Drive will eventually turn into Godfrey Road and then back into Nacimiento Drive. 

Just before the road crosses the damn, go left on Heritage Drive and follow it down past the ranger station and past the market on the left. Walk out on the docks where you can put in your kayak or rent one from the resort.

Maps are available at the ranger station and at any of the resort offices. There is a small market past the parking lot where food and beverages can be purchased.
