“last visit”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

It was my son's last visit to Buxton Woods before moving away from eastern NC, so we had a great walk along the trail, identifying plants and animals as we went. You will need closed-toes shoes for this hike.

“A walk in the woods”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is just what it sounds like - a walk in the woods - that you pay for. We thought we'd see some neat stuff, but we didn't. Bring bug spray!

“So-so”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

This is a self guided tour which falls short. I found myself looking for the end before we were even halfway there. Some info and it's a short walk but not really worth it.

“ticks, snakes and sand”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

This is an interesting walk to see what the Outer Banks is really made of, but the walk is tough due to sand and there are more ticks in this wood than you could even believe. Consider yourself warned.

“Ticks, ticks, ticks”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Very enjoyable easy hike. But, protect yourself and your dogs for exposure to ticks. A good beach alternative excursion.
