Be it hiking, biking, climbing, paddling, fishing, or camping, there’s an abundance of natural beauty and wonder to explore in the Heart of Appalachia.

The Breaks canyon is home to many globally rare species and woodlands. It boasts beautiful scenery, unusual geology, and a robust history, yet its existence has been threatened throughout the past and it still faces an uncertain future.
