First Day Basin Hike

First Day Basin Hike

Start the year off right with a hike down the beautiful Basin Trail. Join a ranger as we hike approximately 2 miles down and back to the basin. We will discuss the significance of a barrier island and the variety of flora and fauna throughout the trail. The hike is of moderate difficulty and can be muddy. Please dress accordingly and bring water if needed. Call 910-458-5798 to make reservations!
