Paddle on the Dismal Swamp Canal, adjacent to the Great Dismal Swamp — “a unique and mysterious place” — charted by George Washington’s survey company in 1763. Paddlers push off into the Dismal Swamp Canal Trail and navigate their own canoes or kayaks, from South Mills, NC to the Ballahack Boat Ramp in Chesapeake along the Dismal Swamp Canal Trail, joining other paddlers for a picnic lunch.
