Neusiok Trail

Yesterday, we hiked the northern portion of the Neusiok Trail in Croatan National Forest, from Pine Cliff to NC-101.  We started at the Pine Cliff Recreation Area and hiked along the beach for a mile or so, before heading into the forest.  Due to Hurricane Irene this summer, there were many trees down, but we didn't have much trouble climbing over or going around the downed trees.  After a few more miles, we stopped at Copperhead Landing shelter for lunch.  After this point, the trail was pretty easy to follow and there were few trees down along the trail.  We continued on to NC-306, crossed the road, and finished the last two or so miles to NC-101.  We had left a few shuttle cars here and shuttled back to Pine Cliff.  On the way home, we took the Minnesott Beach Ferry across the sound and headed to New Bern for dinner before heading back to Raleigh.  It was a great trip and I look forward to heading back next week.
