Very hard to find the trail. It is sparsely marked in some places & just sort of ends in other places. We accessed the trail from Covered Bridge Road, which is on some maps but isn't actually marked with a sign. Bug repellent is a must. It was an interesting hike but very frustrating to try to find the trailhead.

There wasn’t much parking at the trailhead on Ridge Rd. The trail to the sound was fairly well-marked by small signs and a light blue post. It was narrow and wet in some areas. The view of the sound was obstructed by trees. We preferred the trails in Nags Head and the Sandy Run boardwalk trail which were both in great shape and much more enjoyable.

Locals said the trail was marked, which it was, but not thoroughly. Hard to follow, should have just stuck to the GPS map. Ended up on a private road going in the wrong direction at one point.

Put-in is at the public boat launch on Bob Perry Rd (off of W Kitty Hawk Rd) where there is lots of parking and public toilet facilities. You can follow the creek north to Jean Guite creek where you can explore a number of side channels and paddle under one of the few covered bridges in eastern NC. Is is a very peaceful trip where you will see plenty of wildlife. Following the creek south will lead you to Kitty Hawk Bay where you can explore a number of channels that are cut through the wetlands.
