Dismal Swamp Bike Ride

It's a beautiful spring day today, so with no commitments on a Saturday (for once) we took the kids on a bike ride along the Dismal Swamp Canal.  The bike trail is 2.75 miles and located just north of South Mills, NC. 

We parked at the south end of the trail and rode our bikes to the welcome center.  All the kids did fabulous...even the little girls who haven't ridden their bikes anywhere but around our neighborhood.  BK, MG, and I waited at a picnic table as John, K, and P rode their bikes back to the truck to drive back up to the where we were.  Poor BK wasn't going to make it another 2.75 miles!

MG playing peek-a-boo


After the truck and the rest of our crew arrived we had a little snack and checked out the welcome center that details the history of the Dismal Swamp.  Then we headed out onto the boardwalk trail (.5 mile). 

MG had a little visitor!

We didn't check out the logging trails that were also there for hiking as the little legs were tired.  But we'll definitely go back.  There's plenty left to explore!:)
