Gifford Pinchot Lake, Central PA

Trip Overview

Evening Paddle on a very glassy Lake Gifford Pinchot. The scenery is beautiful and the water is very warm. Water however is cloudy and not good for visibility. Not too many people using the lake. I think I was the only paddle boarder in sight. There were a few boats with fisherman and a couple kayaks. I Had a great time as the sun was setting over the Pennsylvania Skyline. Easy access to the water and parking was very close to the shore
