Relaxing at Adams Mill
Canoeing on the Wildcat!
"Discover the Wildcat at Adams Mill" is an event held the first Saturday in June at Adams Mill near Cutler in southeastern Carroll County. It is sponsored by the Wildcat Guardians and Wildcat Creek Foundation.
It is held on National Trails Day and celebrates an important water trail--the North Fork of the WIldcat Creek.
The annual event was held in 2011 and featured live music, free canoe rides, tours of the adjacent Adams Mill Oxbow Natural Area, and good food provided by Promoting Wildcat Valley. Some years artists set up on Adams Mill grounds to demonstrate their craft.
The three sponsoring organizations share their missions and specific goals as well as present ways for citizens to get involved. Other related orgainzations also have booths providing information about their activities. In 2010, Adams Mill Inc. and The Friends of Carroll County Parks had tables.
Tours of Adams Mill are always available. Parking is provided across the road from the Mill at the DNR access site for fishing, tubing, and canoeing. The free canoe rides launch from this area and end at the other end of the Oxbow in the area behind the Mill.
The Adams Mill grounds are available for recreation and relaxation, and visitors can explore tent camping possibilities and overnight cabin availability. The nearby Adams Mill Covered Bridge is just a short walk away, and next to it are stairs down to the Oxbow area.
All these events and amenities provide a full day of wholesome family fun for both adults and children.
