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.

Beautiful early spring walk on sweetgum and blueberry trails. The trees growing out of the swamp are erie and majestic. These hikes were not wheel chair friendly. Nice place for pictures on wooden bridges near visitor center. Later in season make sure to have big spray!

Very interesting hike. Crosses through at least three distinct types of forest and has terrain features I would never have expected on an island like Nags Head. I would strongly encourage either long sleeves and pants or copious amounts of insect repellent as Mosquitos are plentiful and there are sections which could be prone to housing ticks. Otherwise a beautiful hike.
