Biking, Hiking Trails and Walking Paths
Take a stroll along the Indian Trails walking path and you just might see a doe with her baby fawns scampering through the woods along the river. Mallard ducks, Canadian geese, blue herons or an occasional swan can be seen along the shores of the mill pond, and if you are lucky you may see a bald eagle fly overhead! If you watch patiently you might catch a glimpse of fish jumping out of the water to catch their daily meal. Not a day goes by that you won't spot a young family or grandfather and grandchild fishing along the shores.
Classic Car and Bike Show
Start your engines! Car and motorcycle enthusiasts will find the various car meets throughout the year a great place to spot rare classics, torqued-up custom cars, and stunning motorcycles on display.
