Come join TLC and Hike It Baby for a special hike in honor of National Take a Child Outside Week. We will have a nature objects show and tell with turtle shells, antlers, feathers, and fossils for little ones to touch and hold, before a gentle 1 and a half mile hike following the creek through the shaded woods of Johnston Mill Nature Preserve. We’ll walk at a flexible rate to accommodate children riding in carriers and walking on their own. This walk is perfect for families with children ages 0-5. Registration is required.
Trip runs approximately 3.5 hours. This trip includes a canoe or kayak, guide service, and TLC representative’s historical perspective.
Paddle the Deep River with Frog Hollow Outdoors and Triangle Land Conservancy. Flowing water and a single class I rapid await on this paddle through what was one of NC’s more active mining areas.
