Jockey's Ridge State Park
Jockey's Ridge State Park Review
Jockey's Ridge State Park has 420 acres that encompass the tallest sand dune on the East Coast (about 80 to 100 feet). Walk along the 360-foot boardwalk from the visitor center to the edge of the dune. The climb to the top is a challenge; nevertheless, it's a popular spot for hang gliding, kite flying, and sand boarding. You can also explore an estuary, a museum, and a self-guide trail through the park. In summer, join the free Sunset on the Ridge program: watch the sun disappear while you sit on the dunes and learn about their local legends and history. Covered footwear is a wise choice here, as the loose sand gets quite hot in the summer months.
