While most of the land along the river is privately owned, there is ample opportunity for canoeing, kayaking, rafting, tubing, fishing, and eagle watching. Villages, historic buildings, remnants of a once-busy canal, the nations oldest existing wire cable suspension bridge, and the home of author Zane Grey are some the river valley's sights.
