Half the trail is closed for hunters. Really inconvenient!

Nice, clean and peaceful.

This trail was quite popular for good reason. Sun coming through the pines was breath taking. I made a note of the private camp sites. Beware! Port a Johns are a distance and water even further. Backpacking with a car! Sounds good to me. Longer trail and tent on list for the future. Bottom line, worth the drive from Wilmington!

Nice woodland and water views all the way out the peninsula. It sticks out into Shearness pool.

A nice trail running out a peninsula. There is no tower on this one but a lot of nice views along the way.

Visited this trail beginning of April. Very short and flat trail...probably good for running. I did a bike ride through the trail and got lost for a while. I had to use the GPS off my phone to find the main road and there was barely any reception. Make sure you bug spray, there are many ticks there.

I brought my dog with me and it was fun. Very easy trail. There are two, the yellow (2.5 mi) and the blue (4.7 mi). We did the blue in less than 3 hours.
