Horseshoe Lake (near Big Lake)
Horseshoe Lake is
a towing site with access courtesy of, and by invite only from, Rick
Young. A fire in 1998 cleared the area of most of the trees
which allows ample room for launch and landing on Rick’s lakefront
Work Best When:
Morning hours with light winds from the southwest to northwest are launchable. Later in the day the winds tend to pick up, but so does XC potential. No XC has been attempted to date but cloud streets regularly develop heading north and south.
