Carolina Beach State Park Campground Trail is a 3.7 mile loop trail located near Carolina Beach, NC and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, camping, and sea kayaking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
This trail takes you all around the park. Great water views. Really enjoyed the dunes as well. Nice beach hike!
This park is amazing! I was happy with the amount of shade, the easy accessibility of the trails, and the way all the trails connect to make one massive loop. Great hike, really feels secluded from the main roads.
Easy trails, lots of shade, my dogs loves! Pup loves running along the water toward the front of the park and exploring all the trails. NCPaddle has great rentals of kayaks or SUP.
I hiked this entire state park March 2015. All the trails are very well kept and the signs make it incredibly easy to navigate. The entire state park is pretty flat except for the sugarloaf dune. The dune is definitely the most exciting part of the park overall. There's a tire swing and it offers a good view of the Cape Fear River. Another really cool thing about the park is that there's a large variety of ecosystems that exist within the park. If you hike on a few different trails the scenery can be quite different from the last. (The Wilmington area is also native to the Venus Flytrap, so watch for those! They are endangered though, so be careful.) Overall, very nice and well-kept park!
Great flat trail. Good for taking the dog out. Saw some deer in the woods last time we were out as well!
I live near here. Good trail through swamps, ocean pine forests, grass land, and along Cape Fear River. Some board walks in wet areas, flat,and easy to walk with family. Many diferent trails to walk, about 5 miles total.
Big fan of this easy trail - loops around about two miles total, on one side you have an inlet to the ocean, continue on and you hit some beautiful white sand dunes to hike through. Great to take the dog. Free parking at the state park hq.
Enough trails for one day. Well marked flat trails. Great place to see many species of carnivorous plants.
