Calero Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Like most of the other lakes in the area Calero gets busy with powerboats on summer weekends, but it is less than a mile paddle across the lake from the launch ramp to the “no wake zone” in Cherry Cove.

Most power craft shun this narrow, picturesque finger of water where oak-clad hillsides rise steeply on either side as you paddle up Cherry Canyon. Here birdlife is common, and the park has placed bat boxes, so check out the Full Moon Paddles run by Santa Clara County Parks."
