Emporium is the county seat and has many beautiful public art murals throughout the town. The new West Creek Trail connects Emporium with St. Marys. During the winter months the trail provides snowmobilers, riding the nearby state forest trails, easy access to downtown. There is also access for horseback riding on Thunder Mountain Equestrian Trail near Sizerville State Park. A sure sign of spring is the annual Cameron County Canoe and Kayak Classic in early April, which is one of the largest downriver paddling events in the state. Emporium also hosts a popular Big Foot Hunt during Weekend in the Wilds each July and rings in the holidays with Christmas in the Wilds.
