Paddle Sylvan Lake

Originally added by Alex Thompson

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!
