Nice easy trail. Takes you out to a viewing stand where we stayed for about 30 minutes with our binoculars watching all the ibis, pelicans, cormorants, etc. But as everyone has already said, BUG SPRAY IS A MUST!
This is an easy walk and beautiful. Love the pine cones, they are more buffed and shinny rather than dark brown and dull. It was a fun experience and I walked it alone no wild animals came after me.
We like hiking the trails at Hammock Hills Nature Trails. Not a big place but good exercise and always some wildlife to see in the way of seabirds or even an occasional dolphin. Better in the early morning and late afternoon.
Nature trail was great, shaded most of the way. Lots of informative placards to let you know what you might see and other information about the area. Watch your step, lots of frogs and Fiddle Crabs (you can see them on the path and her them scurrying in the woods) Majestic, Serene a stroll thru a piece of mother earth... 更多

This is a great way to get away from the many people on Ocracoke(especially in the summer) and find a quiet place to walk, listen the wind in the grasses and trees, and possibly... 更多
if you are looking for a great place on Ocracoke to relax and enjoy the sunset and get away from the crowds then this is where you need to go. No pomp and circumstance, just undisturbed nature
These trails are beautiful, and the little information signs along the way are a huge help. However, be sure to bring bug spray or the mosquitoes will eat you alive!
Can't climb it but it's a wonderful light house to visit. Beautiful grounds with a long boardwalk. The top of the lighthouse is visble from many areas around the harbor. Beautiful at night. Bring the bug spray if the wind is light.
