Inaugural Trail Hike at Fort Macon State Park
A fabulous new hiking trail will be opening up on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina, and you can be one of the first to hike it!
The Friends of Fort Macon invite you to help Celebrate the opening of the 1st Phase of the Fort Macon Nature Trail. Mark your calendar for tomorrow morning, Saturday, October 10th, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. Meet at the Fort Macon Picnic/Beach Area and experience the unspoiled beauty of the park as you work your way through the Maritime Forest.
Park Superintendant, Randy Newman, park staff, volunteers and Scouts from Morehead City (Randy just happens to be a Scout Leader) all have been working hard to make this trail become a reality. When completed, it will be a 5K Trail running through Fort Macon State Park and gives Hikers a fabulous place to enjoy nature!
My family and I will be there to enjoy the inaugural hike and thank all the folks who made this trail a possibility for all of us on the Crystal Coast. Our ten year old and his Cub Scout Pack has been helping with the trail, and he is very excited to see & experience the fruits of his labor!
My sweet Kayla had the opportunity for a "sneak peek". She totally approves of the new trail.....

Don't forget your bug spray! With all this rain we've had, I have no doubts that the Mosquitos will be in abundance. I will have extra.... just in case.
