Easy trail with some information posts and wildlife. Wear bug spray. We came across a cottonmouth and a garter snake, some frogs, and a spider the size of a baseball. Short but good.

This is a paddle not a hiking trail. Entrance is a canal on private property! Very disappointed.

Mostly shaded wide nature trail with signs along the loop describing items of interest. We had to be careful not to step on the dozens of Fowler’s Toads crossing the trail.

Great stretch along Hwy 12. We’ve been to the original placement of the Hatteras Light as well as to the new location – quite an engineering feat to move it. We make this part of the Hwy 12 Lighthouse run – great day trip for families. Lots to do, kayak, swim, surf, fly kites, fish, hike, stroll, birdwatch, build sandcastles… If you are on the Outer Banks, I highly recommend this trip and visiting Cape Hatteras National Seashore!
