Donal C. O’Brien Sanctuary and Audubon Center at Pine Island has a 2.5-mile nature trail that follows the path of an old dirt road formerly used between Duck and Corolla. There are two overlooks perfect for bird watching.
Kitty Hawk Woods is a large maritime forest that consists of several trails that meander through the wetlands. Trails on the west side of Kitty Hawk Woods can accommodate visitors hiking, biking, or on horseback. Sandy Run Park, on the east side of The Woods Road, is an easy, approximately 0.5-mile loop that is perfect for the smallest Outer Banks hikers.
