Hemlock Paddle – Rob’s Trail Hike

June 27, 2021 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
North Boat Launch
Hemlock Lake

This Sunday we will be hiking and boating on Hemlock Lake.  As always, please check back here before the hike in case of bad weather.

We will all meet at the North Boat Launch on Hemlock Lake. Boaters should arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to unload boats. The launch has been expanded since last summer, so unloading should be quite easy. Hikers will follow the trail south along the lake and can continue up Rob’s trail if time permits. Hikers should return to the cars by 6:00 PM, either along the trail or along the shore line (the lake is low enough to allow walking next to the water).

Boaters will explore the north end of the lake. We will make a loop, crossing the lake once each direction. If desired, some hikers will plan to meet a boat at the Rob’s Trail beach and trade transport with a boater.

Following the hike, we will enjoy an optional pot-luck supper at the Hemlock Park pavilion. Bring your own beverage, a dish to pass, and, if you prefer, your own reusable plate and silverware.

Directions are available here.

One final note: With the low water on Hemlock, the south boat launch appears to be unusable. See the image to the left.
