Earlier this month I spent a weekend exploring Carolina Beach State Park. I've done a lot of hiking across the country and this park has one the most diverse environments I've seen. In a mile and a half hike you traverse through 4 different unique habitats (pocosin, pine savannah, sand ridge and swamp.) It's an easy hike and if you look carefully you might even spot some venus fly traps. The best part of the park is the undeveloped beach, you can follow it out to the end of a small peninsula, which provides a great scenic view of the small inlet.
If you want to discover the park for yourself, Ranger Carla Edwards will be leading two hikes this weekend. Saturday's hike focuses on the 13 different plant communities, while Sunday's will highlight the park's migratory birds. If your interested both hikes start at 2pm and you can find further information in this article.
