Are There Bike Paths Near Me?

No matter what part of Hatteras Island you explore, there will be dozens of marked bike paths. Hatteras Island visitors particularly enjoy biking through Eagle Pass Road to look at lively marshes and ponds that are hidden on the town’s backroads. There’s also a small nature trail nearby that can be viewed on foot or bike. To get there, turn right after passing the sunflower yellow weather station. You’ll pass through what’s known as “Old Hatteras,” which is a group of historic homes, hidden behind Spanish moss coated oaks.
