Hike and Splash - Lake Pleasant

Come ready to get wet and wild! Please bring water, sunscreen, a snack, and wear water shoes that will stay on your feet (no flip flops). Old sneakers that you do not mind getting wet and muddy are OK too. This program is a fun family hike and swim, which is very well attended in the summer months. Here is what to expect: we first fit everyone for a life vest (loaner PFDs are available at the trailhead or you may bring your own). Then we hike down to the water, put on our life vest, and enjoy a dip in the water to cool us down. Once we are all wet and happy, we will hike back up to the parking lot. The hike is about 1/2 mile each way and the program last about two hours.
