Get yourself into a kayak and hit Schrader Creek. Nearby Worlds End State Park offers excellent fishing and hiking and there is an especially good hiking trail nearby called the Dead Horse Trail. Fall Run flows through this area, and if the weather is nice, you can go for a hike along the Hoagland Trail. A hike on the Bills Trail is always a great adventure.
