Weather has warmed, the trees are in bloom and the lake is calm in the morning. This means it’s time to paddle Fallen Leaf Lake! I stopped on my drive to work this morning and took this photo.

Look close to see the geese!

We have a fleet of 12 stand-up paddle boards at our boat dock, if you’re not sure what a stand-up paddle board is (or an SUP as they are also called) then head on over to thesupguru.com.

In advance of meeting or event here at Stanford Sierra, the group coordinator chooses open boat dock hours. During open boat dock hours, our staff members will fit you with a life jacket and help you check out the watercraft of your choice.

The first time I tried paddle boarding I was hooked! We bought boards soon after and spend most of our paddling time on Lake Tahoe. When I can sneak out of work, I paddle on Fallen Leaf Lake.

If you haven’t SUP’ed before, when water is calm is the best time. Check out our video below, Matty gives an excellent intro and some more advanced tips on how to paddle.

If you want a quick lesson for your first paddle on Fallen Leaf Lake, find me in my office on the first floor of the main lodge. I would love to join you at the boat dock for a quick paddle!
