Weekly paddle-Mentor Lagoons

Welcome everyone:)  The lagoons offers a nice paddle whether we are able to go out on to the lake or not-- there are channels of marina and a sheltered beach access.  Going out the channel onto the lake, there are accessible beaches for about 1 1/2 miles.  For evening hours I would prepare with lights and a spray skirt in the event the group decides to lake it.  I enjoy this paddle site as I can get the exercise and see the birds, fish and turtle without going on the lake when there is wind.

Mentor Lagoons also offers a great trail way accessible by bike or hike.. I would be open to meeting early for that most months.  I will have maps of water and trail.

You will want to park to the right when you arrive, there is a sign showing water trailhead.  I will look into the lagoons plans to offer rentals and post hours if they keep them, this has been variable in the past. There is a regular restroom in parking lot and available outhouse at portage near beach.

Looking forward to some enjoyable paddles this summer:)

    Although a gray and hazy start, it ended up a beautiful evening, we had 8 paddlers: 5 RSVPd meet up paddlers and 3 family visitors. Thank you all so much for your hospitality! Pam

    Cool reedy start, nice to explore the circular marina, and the lake was like glass with a great sunset!

    Is there adequate parking for someone using a trailer for their kayak(s)? If so I'm in and might bring someone with me.
