Woohoo -  Summer!

Summer is here!  It's time for biking, hiking, paddling and nights around the campfire.  There are all sorts of ways to explore whether you want to paddle at your own pace down the waterways with Clyde River Recreation or zip over the river and through the woods via a guided ATV tour with NEK Adventures.  It's the perfect time of year to take a hike and there are trails galore in the area from the popular Mt. Pisgah trails to lesser known, but equally spectacular Bluff Mountain, Wheeler Mountain and many others.  

Other events happening this month include....

June 15th - Intro to Fly Fishing
