Nags Head Woods Trails, Nags Head/KDH


Directions: From the south on hwy 158 turn left on Ocean Acres directly across from the McDonalds and 7-eleven. Follow to Nature Conservancy gravel lot and visitor center

Trail Information: Blueberry Ridge/Sassafras Swamp make approximately a 4.5 mile combined loop- rolling hills through beautiful maritime forest. There is also the 1.2 mile roanoke trail. Combine this with an out and back run south down Woods Rd (the gravel road that intersects at the end of Ocean Acres) and you have yourself a nice run in the woods. Lots of wildlife early and late in the day.

Miscellaneous Information: The preserve trails are one of the few places you can run at the beach and not be chased by dogs. Really nice in the fall and spring, can be buggy in the summer. Stay on the trails or you may meet ticks or cottonmouths
