Springer's Point is the highest point of land on Ocracoke and is rooted deep in history. It is most famous for being a hideout to Edward Teach AKA Blackbeard.

The trail is okay. But be warned this is a conservation area: There is NO parking for cars or golf carts anywhere near the trail (and they ticket you if you park in driveways, leave car/cart on side of road), so be prepared to walk or bike here.

Just as my wife told me snakes were not on this island a 4ft black snake crossed in front of us. Be sure to look for the wood carvings of animals. We walked to beach and I went for a nice sunset swim... 更多
Venture into the wilds of Ocracoke for a lovely nature walk that will take you out to the sound overlooking where Blackbeard saw his demise.
