June 21, 2020 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Hemlock South Boat Launch

This Sunday we will celebrate Father’s Day with a return to Hemlock Lake to Kayak from the South End. We will explore the Springwater Creek Inlet and the west side of the lake.

Meanwhile, hikers will go to the Johnson Hill Trail and will enjoy a walk in the woods, above two waterfalls. This trail is appropriate for all skill levels, but if we have more then 10 hikers, we will split into two groups, with one group following the old lake road north along Hemlock Lake.

Fathers are welcome to bring children and grandchildren (and other family members!).

Following the hike everyone is invited to gather for a socially distanced picnic at the boat launch. Bring your own food and beverage and a chair if you wish.

Kayakers will meet at the South Boat Launch. Come early to unload your boat(s) so we are ready to push off at 4:00.

Hikers will meet at the parking area at the entrance to the South Boat launch. From there they will drive to the Johnson Hill Trail or drive or walk the road to the boat launch and then continue on the trail past the boat launch.

Directions to the Hiker’s meeting area are available here. The boaters should follow these directions.

PS. For those of you expecting a Conesus Inlet paddle and hike, the Inlet Trail has not been mowed this year.  However, the trail south from the bridge on Sliker Rd is mowed and has two nice views of the inlet pond.
