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!

The shooting range is for the town police department, not a bunch of crazy north carolina gun lovin' rednecks. thanks for the snarky comment though.

What a wonderful reprieve from the 40 degree (April!) beach! The preserve trails were beautiful, quiet, peaceful, and much warmer. It was a little scary seeing some signs about shooting ranges being close by, but indication that we should be safe as long as we stay on the trail. I guess that's NC for you? Totally different vegetation than what we're used to on the West coast- very cool to see- green water was very neat, and my daughter had a lot of fun! Very happy to have found this place.
