Deep within Goose Creek State Park, the Live Oak Trail passes through a large picnic area. The trail forms a loop, with a shortcut to the restrooms that divides the loop in two. Massive old oak trees cover the entire area with shade, as you make your way out to the grandiose Pamlico River. Here, the dogs can play in the water while you enjoy long range views from the shoreline, making this is one of my favorites, and the dog’s too! Although the loop is short, you’ll reap several benefits from this one. The paved path begins by leading you to a crossroads where the loop begins. Standing here, you can see clear across the picnic area to the expansive Pamlico River. If you head right it takes you south past a picnic shelter and to the designated swimming area. If you go left it leads southeast toward the restrooms and then out to the water. This route gets the dogs to the water a little quicker.
