While you are on vacation, why not try some outdoor activities youve heard about. Ever try fly fishing or flatwater kayaking? Later you may feel like renting your own kayak and go exploring, take an interpretive nature walk and learn more about the outdoors than you ever expected. Its a great time to do this with your children as well. Have you always wanted to go on the Yough River but didnt want to do the Wild Water experience? Keep in mind that Garrett County has something for everyone from the mild to wild waters, for beginners (and all ages) why not try a Family Float trip on moving slack water. Its a great way to be on the water and view various birds through the Yough corridor. Learn orienteering or how to shoot sporting clays, its a blast! Want to learn more about the lake and see it from the water, try an interpretive boat tour.
Take an ecotour as the sun rises, watch and listen as forest critters come alive, let nature surround you. Be a part of the environment. The Nature Tourism program can help you discover where and how to locate many outdoor activities, and some indoor as well.
