Activities planned include riding mountain bikes along Lake Fayetteville's 5.5 mile nature trail, climbing Lewis and Clark's 25 foot rock wall and maneuvering a kayak in Lake Fayetteville. Participants will also fish, hike, go slacklining, play disc golf, and play volleyball at Veterans Memorial Park sand volleyball courts.
