Pete’s Pick: Learn to Paddle on Philpott Lake

No kayak, no problem!

Go kayaking on Philpott Lake with a certified instructor and experience the wildlife and solitude of Philpott Lake’s great coves while learning how to paddle.

Beth Wiegandt, an American Canoe Association certified instructor, will lead the 8-mile paddle on the lake from Jamison Mill to Calico Rock in the course offered by Franklin County Parks and Recreation. (No experience is necessary.)

All the gear you need for the outing on June 10 is provided. Although you should probably pack water and snacks since you’ll be out on the water from 1 to 6 p.m.

Online registration is open. Look for “Sea Kayaking at Philpott Lake.”
