What sets the Green Mountain Reservoir apart from other lakes in the area? First and foremost, you are allowed to get into the water! For some, there’s just something not quite right about going to the lake and not diving in. Since getting into the water in encouraged, wakeboarding, tubing, skiing, paddle boarding, and swimming are very common on this lake. Another good spot to people-watch is near the cliffs on the northwest side of the lake by the dam, where there are usually some thrill seekers jumping off of the cliffs. Rent a pontoon boat to have a front row seat to the shenanigans.
Also in the area is Cataract Lake which is home of some of the best hiking trails that Summit County has to offer.
