We are staying in Sand Hill Cove for a week, next week. We'd like to take a day trip to BI one of the days. We have never been there before, so I have no idea what to expect.
We'd love to see the Southeast Lighthouse and Mohegan Bluffs. 3 adults and 3 children (8mo, 2.5 yrs, 5yrs). The adults are fairly active. We really can't do bikes because of the 8mo old, unless one of the bike rentals had a front child seat, which I'm thinking would be hard to find out in advance.
I was thinking we could take a taxi to the bluffs and then walk back to town. It looks like a 2 mile walk. That distance should be fine for the adults, but we'd need to bring a stroller for the little ones. How are the roads, can we safely walk with a double stroller? I see there are trails, not sure if they go from town to the bluffs (having troubles finding trail maps). Are the trails such that we could push a stroller on them (big wheels on stroller so okay on dirt), or are they steep hiking only trails? Are there bike trails that go from town to the bluffs?
Is it a scenic walk? Would it just be better to catch a taxi back to town? Can we catch a taxi at the light house and just get back to town that way? It would be great for us to check out the sights and also get some excersise. But don't want to put too much stress on the little ones.
Oh, any recommendation on days to go to BI? Rather go on a day where the ferry may not be so populated.
Thanks much in advance for any information!!
