Paddle on this small reservoir among granite cliffs.

Shared parking lot with the Harney Peak trailhead with bathrooms and picnic area. Several points for launching watercraft. There is a beach that gets crowded during summer weekend days. Paddling to the other side of the lake where there are mini-slots in the cliffs is fun!
