Kayak Paddle: Upper Scotts Flat Lake

April 20, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Upper Scotts Flat is a scenic lake, located just east of Nevada City at an elevation of approximately 3,100 feet. Fed by Deer Creek, it is surrounded by wooded hills, offering paddling up to the infeed creek and along approximately 7.5 miles of shoreline. Bring your lunch and water. We’ll plan to stop at a nice beach along the way. This is a fairly easy paddle, at a leisurely to moderate pace, appropriate for most skill levels, though reach out if you have a question as to fit. Paddlers will be 18 years of age or older. We want to stick together as a group, staying safe and happy.
Please give some thought to your footprint upon the watershed along our journey!

Please respond to Wendy at wtbreezy17@gmail.com if you would like to participate in this event or have any questions. Directions and further information will then be provided. As a point of reference, drive time is approx 20 minutes east from Grass Valley/Nevada City. Launch at 10:30 AM, please arrive at least 30 minutes prior. Boats of 13 feet or longer are required, with watertight compartments. Participants must sign a liability waiver and wear a PFD/lifejacket. Resort entry fee applies ($15 per vehicle with two kayaks).
