Rainbow is the beach locals frequent, a quick bike ride (or even walk) from the chalet, over a paved trail, past wetlands, through old growth trees, and a variety of other vegetation. The beach is sandy and safe for swimming, and there is a pier, volleyball, kayaking, and other activities. On the way, you follow the River of Golden Dreams, from which you often hear comments from kayakers (who can't see you) as they wind their way. You can also stop to watch animal / bird life from a deck overlooking the lake. Remember to be respectful: The animals were there long before we were!

Beautiful lake for swimming, paddling, or just hanging out. Numerous swim docks, dog beaches, volleyball courts. Check out rainbow park on the West side of the lake (accessed by Alta Lake Road)

JUST A 5 MINUTE DRIVE FROM HAWTHORNE PLACE

Lay down a blanket on the grassy lawn of Lakeside Park with a picnic and rent a kayak, paddle board or paddle boat. It's just off the valley trail so you can bike, walk or drive to this location. There's also a small concession stand for treats and beach toys.
