Wright Brothers Multi-Use Path

Great easy flat paved trail!

July, 2020 by dustin.horning1

This trail goes down along Kitty Hawk Bay and has tons of little public and private docks along the way. Bike ride or going on a leisurely walk with the fam fam this trail has lot to look at and nice people along the way. We stayed at a rental in an attached neighborhood and it was a perfect bike ride to get some exercise on vacation. Highly recommend it! I went down and back and I got 7.4 miles in, so I suspect this is a lot longer than 1.5 miles. Just FYI!

Wright Brothers Multi-Use Path

Wright Brothers Trail

March, 2020 by 1157srs

This is part of the trail system in the Outer Banks and provides a scenic connection along Kitty Hawk Bay between Bay Dr on the south and Moor Shore Rd on the north. Parking is available at a small park on Windgrass Circle. Historical note, the path is on what was once part of the route the Wright Brothers used during their first year of experiments at the Outer Banks. They stayed in Kitty Hawk village, later camping on the dunes overlooking Kitty Hawk Bay in the vicinity of this trail. Bayo “commuted” to Kill Devil Hills.

Corolla Greenway

Map needs correction

April, 2018 by posh_tl

803 Ocean Trail, Corolla NC is the address attached to the southern end of the map. The greenway actually runs south from Timbuck II shopping plaza and is parallel to the main road on the east side. There is another paved path to the north that starts near the bank parking lot and runs parallel to the main road on the west side.

Corolla Greenway

Don't be fooled by the name

October, 2017 by stevespr1

This is essentially a 6-mile sidewalk ride along Route 12. There are no signs that say Corolla Greenway. You're not going to see the Sound or the Lighthouse or the Inn unless you take a little bit detour off the route (in other words you're not biking right by them). We asked three people who live/work in Corolla, including at the park by the Lighthouse and none knew what or where the Corolla Greenway was. Also, don't be fooled by the map where it tells you that you can park on the North Beach Access Road at the North End of the trail - you must have a 4-wheel drive vehicle and drive on the beach (preferably with slightly deflated tires) to get to that parking. This is a nice little bike ride if you're staying nearby, but it's not worth driving any distance for.
