Description

Take a step back to the past and experience our dune built by FDR CCC (civilian corps conservation) in the 1930s. During the 1930s, there were 2 groups of the CCC one in North Carolina and Virginia. The group built a fence from either direction and met somewhere in the middle. Then over time sand had built over the fence creating what you see today.

To get to the trailhead of the dune trail, go straight down the 1st parking lot where you'll see a stop sign and a no vehicles allowed sign. Stay left on the fork on the gravel pathway. The Dune trail will be on the left hand side. On this trail, visitors will hike along the boardwalk and can get the chance to use outdoors binoculars and the benches on the viewing platform. Lastly, there is a steep sandy incline over the dunes.

Flora & Fauna

American beach grass and sea oats are some of the plants that can be seen.
