A fantastic surprise in the OBX. A great trail run in a hidden gem smack in middle of Kill Devil Hills. Surprising variation in elevation along the run from blueberry and bumble gum. About a 4 mile or so run. One hill is killer for sure. My only down mark would be and also to some would not be a concern would be that the trails are very narrow. I make sure to search for ticks here as you are very much in the woods and there are spots that’ll are slightly overgrown and you will have to track through vegetation. That is also an endearing quality I like here too.

The signs were really easy to follow and the scenery was both beautiful and fascinating. You will pass a small cemetery and later learn more about the family that it belonged to. It's ends at a little beach by the sound and when I got there a couple told me that I had just missed seeing a snake eat an eel. Really cool especially if you're used to mainland scenery - it's totally different.

New Year's was a bug free walk. We did see a cottonmouth moccasin sunning himself on this chilly day. Well-marked, popular, but not overly crowded. Wooded dunes hidden off the beaten OBX track offer well-maintained and marked trails appropriate for hikers of all ages and conditions.

Fun trail with great terrain changes. Our dogs (and my husband) were covered in ticks after. No mosquitoes when we went (November).

TONS of mosquitos due to all the standing water -- don't forget your bug repellent! Otherwise a pleasant trek.

Loved this hike. Had no idea I would find a hike like this in OBX.

An incredible chance to experience maritime forest. Many trails to select and link together for all levels.

well maintained trail. enjoyed the trail and all its views. nature was quiet, but the quietness of the trail, spoke volumes. great family and individual trail. Also, a nice trail run would be in my future plans.
