Short easy trail worth a see but still being improved

Easy walk, level wide trails. The overlook has binoculars. Do not use the official trail map from Wakegov.com, it is completely outdated. The trail map in this app or also the printed maps at the park are correct.

A hidden gem. The trail is well maintained and easy to travel. The area is very clean and offers many areas to picnic, benches along the trails, a privy at the trailhead, wildlife viewing, bird watching, etc. The trail is opened Monday-Sunday 8am- sunset during the peak season (Mother’s Day until the first weekend in August) and Saturday-Sunday 8am-sunset during the off peak season (First weekend in August until Mother’s Day). Take advantage of this unique area of NC which is a transitional area between the Piedmont and the Coastal Plain of the state.
