Within view of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, you’ll find a lovely little rustic picnic area along the edge of Buxton Woods. Tables, trash cans, and a pair of vault toilets near the trailhead give you a place to grab a snack before heading into the forest. Interpretive signs along this loop trail educate you on the flora and fauna found here. This hike makes a nice pit stop as you make your way up or down the Outer Banks. Be sure to visit the lighthouse while you’re here.
