From the main parking lot, turn left on Ocean Acres Dr.; follow to the stop sign and continue ahead about 50 yards. You will see the trailhead and signs. There are two handicapped parking spaces available at the trailhead.
This .5 mile loop goes around an interdunal freshwater pond and through a maritime swamp forest with an overlook of the brackish marsh. The trail is comprised of a wooden boardwalk and concrete, allowing those with disabilities and small children in strollers the opportunity to experience nature in Nags Head Woods.
