“Asci- Adventure Sports Center Institute - a man made whitewater course located just a few minutes up the mountain from The Wisp. It is the only mountaintop recirculating whitewater course in the world with gentle rapids in a controlled environment. If you’re just not into the whitewater or just curious you can walk a one mile trail around the course, watching the more adventurous hit the rapids. Abundant parking. ”

“Virgin Hemlock forest patronized by Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and Harvey Firestone during their day. Maryland's highest waterfall is a sight to behold. Groomed hiking trails abound and, if you are up for the challenge, take on the 5.5 mile trail between Swallow Falls State Park and Herrington Manor State Park! On bike or on foot, this trail will offer you life memories that you will cherish! A MUST SEE when visiting our County!”
