Currituck Banks National Estuarine Preserve

A great activity for nature lovers and hikers, the Reserve Access Trail takes visitors into the marshy areas of Currituck County. Identify the various types of flora indigenous to the area; the trail is ideal for birdwatchers, too. As this is protected land, no hunting or fishing is allowed, but it is worth the visit to see a part of the Outer Banks in its natural beauty.
