Watershed Trails – A Place for  Awesome Nature Experiences

Cycle, run, paddle or hike! Watershed trails offers adventures and relaxing nature experiences.

The watershed area served as a crossroads for waterways, through which people, merchandise and tools passed, while leaving the local culture an attitude in which a traveler is treated as an anticipated friend. The watershed is the highest place in the surrounding area. You are surprised to find a lot of things you are used to facing considerably more north.

The trail has a bristle landscape, sandy fabrics and a fine creek. On the way you will also see memories of our old inhabitants. You will not get lost on the route, and there is not a long way to the nearest road. The route is also well suited for the first common tent work for families with children or for those whose feet do not carry too far.
