|Part of the N.C. Coastal Reserve System, a maritime deciduous forest runs along the coastline and low, gently rolling dune ridges interspersed with wet swales run parallel to the shoreline. The area is great for birding during the breeding season and fall migration. Hiking Trails: A two-mile long hiking trail is located at the end of Birch Lane, off of Treasure Street.
