Bike and Boat trips available upon request. Bike up along side the beautiful Youghiogheny River on the GAP Trail. We will then meet you at your destination with a canoe or kayak and you float back down stream, and we will bring your bikes back with us!
We also sell fishing licenses! So if you have a passion for the outdoors, you want to come see us and fish the Yough! Our Stock the Yough program will be in full swing from March-April for the start of trout season!
