All aboard for a unique adventure into the Secret Valley
Bring your friends for a leisurely, pedal-powered adventure into the tall forests of the Secret Valley where you will cross bridges, chase creeks, and take in all the wonder the picturesque valley has to offer. Keep an open eye out for wildlife including white tailed deer, great blue heron, and bald eagles! Explore the same magical rock cuts that were hand-dug by Civil War veterans in the late 1860's. Learn about the magnetic rocks that spawned the first iron industry in the United States, provided George Washington with cannon balls, and later brought Thomas Edison to the Secret Valley for an invention that was not a successful as the light bulb.
