Washington’s Colchuck Lake | A True Alpine Gem

SUP Destinations | Washington’s Colchuck Lake

Nestled between a pair of towering mountain peaks rests the alpine gem of Colchuck Lake. While there are countless scenic lakes located in Washington, Colchuck surely ranks near the top due to its clear waters, incredible views of the mountains, and remote location. Paddler Darrell Kirk recently decided to explore the lake for himself and produced this latest video to prove it. Not a journey for the rookie paddler, Kirk hiked 11 miles round-trip with his inflatable SUP to be able to paddle the remote alpine lake. While we don’t recommend wearing shorts and hiking boots to paddle in icy waters, this video highlights a remote lake that few (if any) paddlers have ever experienced before.
