This is a huge area with lots of activities like hiking, mountain biking, camping, kayaking and fishing. It used to be an area mined for coal that has been completely redone and it's incredible how natural and beautiful it is now, you would have no idea of its origins. There are lots of lakes and streams and local wildlife. If you want to make a side trip, it's near The Wilds, an animal sanctuary with African animals like rhinos, zebras and giraffes.
