We did the NC12 Lighthouse run, starting with Currituck to Bodie to Hatteras to Ocracoke... nice short boardwalk trail to the marshes from the Bodie Island Lighthouse. Must stop if you are on the outer banks.

Accessible trail. Great views.

It was hot, but its a short walk, Nice boardwalk to the lake and back. Lots of birds, an alligator or two, maybe a snake can be seen
