____ UPDATE: 3/14/14 ________
I, (Deb Turner) have updated the map that shows the entrance to the parking area and the launch site. It is at: https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=5420+Berryessa+Knoxville+Rd&daddr=38.557818+-122.232262&hl=en&ll=38.554676,-122.2229&spn=0.019834,0.042272&sll=38.556623,-122.232728&sspn=0.009917,0.021136&geocode=FdFgTAIdzNe2-ClfIL6aRfqEgDG-PHUHJeQEZQ%3BFXpYTAIdOuK2-A&t=h&z=15
Note: Not sure if Victoria will be leading the paddle tomorrow or not. She is sorry that she hasn't gotten back to everyone about questions but she has been sick the last few days. The paddle is still on. There will be a couple of other rangers leading us. Get well soon, Victoria. Hope we'll see you on the next paddle adventure. Deb T.
Come enjoy Lake Berryessa from a unique perspective on a ranger-led paddling tour. Each tour offers a different experience as we launch from various areas around the lake.
For our first tour of 2014, we will be exploring the islands of Lake Berryessa - Goat Island, Big Island, and Small Island. We hope to see the Bald Eagles and Ospreys. While we are hoping for some BIG RAINS between now and then, it isn't likely that the lake level will rise much - prepare for a bit of a trek down to the water (not too steep). We are meeting in Foxtail Flat in Oak Shores. There is no fee to park or launch, but please be aware that no trailers are allowed in the park.
The fine print: Events occur rain or shine, but high winds could cause an event to be cancelled. Heavy spring rains may change certain launch locations. Paddling outings are open to experienced swimmers with a kayak, canoe or other non-motorized boat. Coast Guard-approved life jackets will be available, but boats will not be available for rent. Participants should bring their boat, life jacket, paddle, sunscreen, hat, water, clothing layers depending on the weather and a lunch/snack. Pre-registration is required, and space is limited. For details and directions, please contact Park Ranger Victoria Payan at[masked] ext. 113 or [masked].
Unfortunately, RSVPing on this site isn't enough to secure a spot. Please send me a quick email at [masked] in order to RSVP. Thank you!
