Anne Springs Close Greenway

July 7, 2011

It’s been forever since I posted, and I’m REALLY way behind.  I’m hoping to be caught up soon (maybe by the end of summer…).  Anyway, at the end of April, we had a perfect Spring weekend, so Kirk and I packed all 3 “kids” (2 kids + 1 dog) up and headed to a greenway that my friend, Brooke, wrote about on her blog a year ago.  By the end of the trip, we had enjoyed a great picnic and spent some good ol’ fashioned quality family time!

I have to tell ya, this greenway is awesome.  Located just over the border in Fort Mill, SC, the greenway is comprised of 35 miles (& growing!) of trails for hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking, the 28-acre Lake Haigler, and campsites.  The greenway will eventually hook up with the greenway system in Charlotte as part of a multi-state greenway system.  If you’re interested, here’s some more info: http://www.leroysprings.com/default.asp?lsc=174&urlkeyword=Ann-Springs-Close-Greenway.
