The kids would call it a nature walk, but the rest of us call it a nice hike. Not a long walk but it is nice through the woods.

We hiked a couple of trails here while visiting Charlotte. The trails are not intense and are very family oriented. Nice, quaint, trails with some beautiful views.

I was in North Carolina last week visiting my son and his wife. She brought me here twice so their dog could have a swim. What a nice place. Lake Norman : unbelievable. People were picnicking, fishing walking or just enjoying the nature. Wonderful.
