Springer’s Point

6 06 2009

Just around the corner from the Ocracoke Lighthouse, is a nature preserve, Springer’s Point. The preserve is owned by the North Carolina Coastal Land Trust.


There’s a short trail you can follow out to the sound.  Along the way, you walk through a natural maritime forest.


When you reach the sound, you’ll come out at a location known as Teach’s Hole — The famous pirate, Blackbeard, was killed here.


If you decide to visit, you should know there’s no parking. You either walk or bike to the preserve. There is a bike rack and information stand at the entrance.
