The title of this ATC comes from the tradition of early map makers who often noted uncharted territories by marking them with fantastic beasts and the words, "Beyond this point, there be dragons."

Stepping Stone River Crossing at the Labyrinth (DR.BOP)

"One remarkable undertaking that has emerged since the flood is an impromptu artistic expression node, called 'The Labyrinth.' The organic, local effort showcases found items that have been re-imagined and displayed in a winding network of small pathways. The Labyrinth has become a minor attraction, with visitors from around the state and elsewhere. Future land use and development concepts should build on the Labyrinth's existing use. The Town should seek to preserve the grassroots artistic expression on site and evolve the aesthetic in the future. The Town should pursue development of a multi-modal trail along Highway 7 to replace the trail destroyed during the flood and discourage use of the Martin Parcel and CR-69 to access near-by regional trails. Additional access from the Labyrinth to the Martin Property via the stepping stone river crossing is expected to be limited."

According to the DR.BOP Plan, Stepping stone river crossings "will connect the Labyrinth to the Martin Property. These spots will also serve as an inner tube take-out and put-in during high season. The thrill of hopping stones along with added convenience will make this a well-used and well-appreciated site element."
