Are there any hazards I should be aware of?
Glisten is located in the middle of a wooded area, which means there are a lot of bugs, particularly mosquitoes. We do our best to keep them at bay, but please be prepared with any bug repellant you may need. Also, please wear flip flops to the water’s edge or dock as there are sometimes sharp objects around the property.
What should I wear for paddle board yoga?
Wear clothing that is appropriate for practicing yoga and dries quickly.
What should I wear to swim?
A regular swimsuit is fine during the summer months; however, you may want a wetsuit in the cooler months. You will also want to bring goggles and a swim cap (if you wear one). We require you to swim with a floatation device and are happy to provide you with a swim buoy at no additional cost. The swim buoy increases visibility and safety as it trails behind you without impeding your swim. Video of the swim buoy can be found HERE.
What if I want to bike?
Wonderful! We invite you to bring your mountain bike and take on the trails before or after your time on the water. Follow the signs for an unguided ride through three and a half miles of beautiful winding trails with a few challenging hills and some sand. If you only plan to Glisten on the bike trail, please drive through the main gate and follow the signs around the lake to sign in. Regardless of when you bike, you must start and finish at the North End of the lake. A helmet is required and it is wise to wear protective eye wear because you may encounter bugs, sticks or other hazards along the trail. If you are not already booked with a Glisten pass, one Glisten pass is required per car, however, everyone biking must sign the waiver. Time lapse of the course can be found HERE.
What if I want to run?
Great! Just lace up your favorite trail shoes before or after your time on the water for a well marked, unguided run. Take in the engaging views of the lake on this loop that is just under a mile. You may want to consider protective eyewear or a hat or visor. If you only plan to Glisten on the trails, please drive in the main gate and follow the signs around the lake to sign in.
