Dismal Swamp State Park, NC Trails is a 148 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near South Mills, NC that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
In the end we spent four days in the park. Mostly by fat tire bike
I spent 2 days and plan to spend more. I saw a bobcat, but he went across in front of me so fast that I could not get his picture even though I had the camera on and in my hand. Like most parks, the rangers are really friendly here. It was beautiful December weather and I truly enjoyed it. Most of the trails in the park are joint hiking/biking except for two.
