At the southern tip of Croatan National Forest, near the mouth of the White Oak River, is the Cedar Point Recreation Area, and the Cedar Point Tideland Trail is certainly a highlight. The trail is comprised of two adjoining loops—a 0.6-mile short loop and a 1.3-miles long loop. The long loop gives you outstanding views of the tideland where the coastal forest meets the salt marsh. The recreation area also offers paddle trails, a fishing pier, a small-craft boat launch, a picnic area, and a campground.
