The Boardwalk Hike In North Carolina That Leads To Incredibly Scenic Views

A visit to the Outer Banks yields a number of stunning vistas. From gorgeous white sand beaches to maritime forests, and even the largest living sand dune on the East Coast, it’s no wonder North Carolina’s coastline is so very popular with tourists and natives alike. The next time you’re in the vicinity of Corolla or Nags Head, continue up (or down) Highway 12 to the Town of Duck for a leisurely boardwalk hike in North Carolina that has something for everyone.

The boardwalk is open daily from dawn until 1 a.m. The park, however, is only open from dawn to dusk. Among the ground rules to be aware of before you go: dogs are allowed on the boardwark as long as they are kept on a leash, and bikes are allowed on the boardwalk but they must be walked.
