There are thousands of acres of forests to explore, with some world class hiking trails and rock climbing. You can also join horseback rides and rent canoes, kayaks and boats or go fishing. In the forest don't miss Chapel Cave, Airplane Rock and Balanced Rock, three local rock formations and caves that you can combine with a good hike.
