“Worth the walk”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

After a visit to the aquarium we decided to take our 2 1/2 year old on the trail. She loved walking and listening to the birds. The views at the end of the trail make the walk worth it. It's about 3/4 mile walk to the end and then you turn around and come back the same way. Total walk is 1.5 miles. Overall easy walk but Bring bug spray!!!!

“A hike well worth it”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

The Theodore Roosevelt Natural Area provides a short hike along the marsh. The trail is located next to the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. However unlike the aquarium, the trail is free so it offers a good and affordable spot for everyone. The hours are posted as the same for the aquarium, but you don't need to go through the aquarium to get to it so don't know how it is monitored.

The trail itself is only about two miles total and is not that difficult. If you are there during the summertime I would recommend wearing bug repellent as I was eaten alive for the first part of the trail. Along the trail are signs that explain different flora. You can also expect to see different animals to include different varieties of birds and other animals such as squirrels.

While not the most scenic of nature trails, the Theodore Roosevelt Natural Area is definitely worth it while in the Outer Banks. While others might be sitting on crowded beaches, those who choose to see areas less travelled should consider hiking along this trail. It is easy and offers some good views. If your going to the aquarium, this is a good add-on for the entire family.
