Description

Located off of the Sugarloaf Trail, follow the blue diamonds for this in and out trail. The trail wanders along a spit of land bordered by the Cape Fear River and a marsh. Hike down to the marsh overlook for a good view of the river and the marsh. In the right season, fiddler crabs can be seen.

Flora & Fauna

Fiddler crabs, dwarf palmetto, and oak toe lichen.
