2.5 Mile Walk on the Neusiok led by Manley Fuller

09/30/2023 07:45 AM - 09:45 AM ET


Join Manley Fuller, Wildlife and Conservation Biologist from the NC Wildlife Federation, for a 2.5 mile walk on the Neusiok Trail that co-locates with the MST. You'll walk through pine and mixed hardwood forest, over wooded swamp, through cane breaks and along brackish and freshwater marsh. Look for fall wildflowers, migrating birds, and learn about the different forest habitats.

Meet at the gravel parking area where Neusiok Trail crosses NC 306. From Havelock head east on NC 101 5.3 miles to Ferry Road (NC 306). Turn left and drive 2 miles. The Neusiok Trail crosses NC 306 here. Park in the gravel lot on the right.

The trail is easy to moderate. A few spots could be a little wet depending on weather, so wear good walking shoes. The trail in September might have some biting insects, hot weather, and uneven footing, so dress appropriately. The walk will be one way with a shuttle service. You will finish the walk in plenty of time to attend the Neusiok Trail 50th Anniversary Celebration in Newport at 11:30am.

Dogs/pets are not encouraged.

Walks are limited to 14 people. If you need to cancel after you register, please contact Sherri Seagroves at sseagroves@mountainstoseatrail.org 

Carteret County Wildlife Club member Mike Barnthouse will host the trail walk. Contact Mike at sea_clusion@hotmail.com or 252-671-0561 for more information
