Really unusual, serene, beautiful wetlands. There are a few places to put a kayak or canoe in, but don't be dissuaded by the heavy plant growth in the water. It can slow you down a bit, but there are plenty of clear area Hus as well. In general, the waterways are narrow and windy, and the views are lovely. Bring a camera and binoculars, as there is much wildlife to be seen. If you're looking for something a bit different from navigating a lake or river, this is definitely worth a try. Great place, and please remember not to litter. Safe trip!

A peaceful place to kayak. It's so quiet we could actually hear the wing beat of a blue heron as it took off. The channel of water meanders slowly thru lush vegetation all around you.... A really unique environment.

We horseback ride there all the time. It is a great linear trail that is about 8+ mile loop. And a nice stop at the Basha Kill Winery for lunch & a glass of wine!
