We went for a short, VERY kid-friendly hike with a friend and her dog last month – one of my last days of maternity leave. We quickly found a creek to play in, and my son took full advantage of it.
The baby was along for the ride in the jogging stroller and did fantastic. (I should do a post on all of the random places we nurse, because I sat on a rock that day to feed her.) 😉
My son was begging to go on another hike right away. Better yet, he took a two-hour nap that afternoon and still went to bed at a decent hour. (Sometimes naps can kill bedtime.)
If you’re in the Asheville, NC area, we parked at the Hard Times trailhead in Bent Creek. It was fantastic.
