The tour begins with a 10-20 minute paddle out to Boulder Island followed by a 100-200 yard hike through gravel or (for added adventure) over boulders and pipes to the old aggregate plant. The plant is a great place to enjoy a packed lunch, campfire and/ or a little singing! From there we'll paddle back to Boulder beach where the pick up vehicle and or your vehicle will be. Experienced kayakers may chose to paddle around the island which can be done in approximately an hour.
Hi! My name is Gabi. I've been hiking and paddling in this beautiful desert since I was 11 years old. There is nothing quite as sweet to me as the cool water of the lake on my warm and toasty skin. I love to see and feel the surface of the water. I'm a big fan of spear fishing, moonlight paddles and campfires on the shore. I'm grateful for every chance I get to share some of the history and beauty we enjoy with others.
