Take any one of a number of paths to explore the unique and beautiful vegetation and wildlife on this beautiful island. It is the best way to enjoy the sights and sounds of a salt marsh and to preserve the beauty.

You don't often get a chance to see such a beautiful natural area. Lots of birds and gorgeous trees, and fish jumping in the creeks and marshes.

Great way to view the natural nature setting of BHI. However it was really hot when we visited and heard something moving in grass...could've been gator we didn't stick around to find out. Worth the walk though just keep your eyes and ears open.

You can often see painted buntings here. Nice boardwalk through the marsh. You may want to use insect spray.

The paths needed cleaning up, and we saw only one bird. I have been on nicer nature trails. The views of the marsh were pleasant, however.

Hiked the trail in late afternoon. No one else was on the trail. It was pleasant. Trail is not well marked and overgrown in places. Did appreciate the foliage markers. Trail is walk-able in sandals and flat. There are several places with excellent views of...More

The nature trail on BHI is a great setting to preserve the salt marshes of Bald Head. However it is not terribly well maintained and could use some signs pointing the direction of travel. My wife and I found ourselves knee deep in bushes because...More

There's much to like about this trail. There;s a Hawks Nest across from the boardwalk entrance up high in the pine trees. Once across the marsh on the boardwalk and onto the little trail through the woods we spotted many birds but our favorite spotting...More

Bald Head Island is full of nature, and visitors should take advantage of the many opportunities to see rare and undisturbed nature up close. The Kent Mitchell Nature Trail is a relatively short romp around a small, uninhabited island in the marsh off Federal Road...More
