Lake Robertson - September 2008

I revisited Lake Robertson yesterday afternoon for about 45 minutes of paddling in my 17' Heritage Expedition kayak. Lake Robertson is a small fishing lake tucked up against the eastern slope of the Allegheny Mountains, and with a sleek, fast kayak, you can lap the lake in about 20 minutes. I usually do about two laps of the lake providing 30 minutes of exercise, plus 10 minutes of poking around.

See my other postings about this lake for more pictures and a more detailed description. With the exception of four people fishing on the banks of the river, I had the water to myself once again. Lake Robertson is about 15 minutes west of Lexington, and it's one of the closest bodies of water to my home, and the only close one large enough for my 17' boat.

Easy boat access and light-to-no boat traffic make this lake nearly ideal for the beginner paddler or anyone looking for a quick afternoon paddle. Views of the Allegheny Mountain front on one side and House Mountain on the other are icing on the cake.
