The Coves of Alum Creek Reservoir

In the spring one of our favorite things to do is to spend the morning exploring the coves of Alum Creek Reservoir. We often launch from the Cheshire Road Bridge area and head for one of the lake’s no wake zones to avoid the motorboat noise. Other than an occasional airplane overhead, or a train not far off, it’s pretty quiet. It’s a pleasant experience any time of the year but the spring with all the birds singing it’s magical. Below are some images from our recent paddles.
