There is a pretty long loop off the north side of the boardwalk that is mapped here. It takes you right up to the sound and you have a good chance of seeing wild horses in there. Not much parking.

WEAR BUG SPRAY. Nice trail but the boardwalk is partially gone and mosquitos will eat you alive

It was a nice shady path that was well marked. The boardwalk path was also well maintained.

Nice quick trail. If you get off the raised platform and take the maritime forest trail you can see some beautiful live oaks and it will take you right up to marshes.

I wasn’t expecting much as the other reviews indicated the highlight was piles of horse poop. This delighted my 6 & 10 year olds. It wasn’t that they had a scientific mind or an explorers interest, but it allowed them to segway into multiple poop jokes. Go the extra distance on the path to get to the end. The view isn’t as good, but it is peaceful & lovely. We actually did see wild horses mid-walk on the way back. All were happy & we had an excellent time.

Nice trail we biked down had good spot to lock bikes. Trail very well marked, lots of signs of horses - fresh poop, prints but we didn’t stumble upon them. Nice easy trail!

It was near 80 today. I took the boardwalk out to the water. i went back to the truck and got my backpack to take the side trail. I had all of this recorded but the app crashed (AGAIN) and I had to uninstall it and lost my recording. I didn't see any horses, but did see poop on the trail and some rooting areas from a wild boar or feral pig. Enjoyed the hike. Both ended up at the sound. No bugs, traffic or people!

The boardwalk section is better than the undeveloped section in the sense that it isn't overgrown and you can move quickly. And you need to move quickly because of the terrible biting deer flies. We did not see the wild horses here, but we did see them on the beach.

This trail has two components. The first is a well maintained boardwalk that passes through a maritime forest to the Currituk Sound. It’s about 6/10 mile out and back. The boardwalk trail is busy and is the trail that the app refers to. However, there is a second trail called the Currituk Banks Maritime Forest Trail that is a 1.5 mile out and back trail. The trailhead is on the boardwalk trail and you can’t miss it. This trail is lightly travelled and you will find more wildlife here than on the boardwalk. It is a well marked trail. The sound view on this trail isn’t as nice as the boardwalk view since you are not on an elevated boardwalk but it is certainly more peaceful. There are wild horses in the area and at several spots along this longer trail we saw horse scat and hoof prints, although we didn’t see the wild horses.
