Kayaking the Dragon Run
The main attraction here is the Dragon Run Wilderness nearby and there is no better way to see it than by Kayak.

Everything is green in color, the quietness is awesome, and the vegetation is full of fascinating species you won’t find anywhere else.
In fact, this ecosystem was ranked second, among the 232 areas that were being surveyed by Smithsonian Institution. Most of the people who come here love the natural beauty that is associated with the remoteness of the place. Everything exists in its most natural form here, so expect to hike your way into the area as most paths cannot accommodate vehicles.
