If you’ve ever done stand-up paddleboarding before, you’ll know how calm and peaceful it can be. Paddleboarders stand up on their board and propel themselves by paddling. Most of the time, paddleboarders go to beaches to practice. But in Ouray, you can try it in a pristine alpine lake!
The best part about stand up paddleboarding in Ouray is that the alpine lakes here are calm and peaceful. This makes the sport a lot easier for first-timers. You can unwind from a long hike, a day mountain biking, or a 4-wheel adventure with a nice stand up paddleboarding session. The views of the San Juan Mountains around the lakes are incredible, too.
Make a day out of paddleboarding by bringing your board over to the lakes. The best lake is the Ridgway State Park Reservoir, which is easy to access and has lots of room. You can also head over to Crystal Lake or Silverjack Reservoir. If you want more challenge, try Ridgway water park or Montrose water park.
A peaceful day stand up paddleboarding can help your stressed mind rest.
