Duck Trail Description

The Duck Trail stretches the length of the Town of Duck, a beach resort in the Outer Banks. The trail links residential areas to the countless restaurants and charming local stores along Duck Road/ NC-12. Residents and visitors can ditch their cars and walk, run or ride on the paved pathway. Note that the trail can get crowded in the Village of Duck where most of the commerce is concentrated. While the trail is mostly completely separated from traffic, there is a short section stretching from the post office to approximately Marlin Drive where non-motorized users have to use the wide shoulders of Duck Road/ NC-12. However, the trail is well-signed, with markers every half-mile, and crosswalks are clearly marked. 

Parking and Trail Access

There is parking at the post office on 1245 Duck Road, Duck.
