Trip Ideas

We have had visitors come straight off the Appalachian Trail and jump in a kayak. We would recommend spending a morning hiking one of the numerous trails in West Milford, and then coming to us to rent a paddleboard. We'll point out some good spots to paddle out to, drop your anchor and swim. After your time on the water, we recommend having dinner next door to us at Latitude 41, which has outside seating and delicious food. And finally, to end the day, we recommend driving up to Bellvale Farms Creamery to eat ice cream and watch the sunset.
