Wright Brothers Multi-Use Path Description

Kitty Hawk is a charming seaside town in the Outer Banks, but it was the Wright Brothers of Ohio who put int on the map when in 1903, they piloted the first ever successful flight. The two names are now intertwined, and the town is more than happy to celebrate the connection. The Wright Brothers Multi-Use path is named for the pioneering inventors and airmen and is a 2500-foot concrete path facing Kitty Hawk Bay. The path extends from Windgrass Circle Park north to Beacon Drive, offering uninterrupted sea views.

Wright Brothers Multi-Use Path Reviews

pleasant and accessible

An ideal picturesque walk for those needing a smooth surface and benches. Docks and water on one side and beautiful large houses with manicured lawns on the other.

Quad Skate

If you have good wheels, you could skate this very short scenic trail.
It's beautiful and partially shaded. I am pretty new to skating but I have outdoor wheels so it wasn't too rough.

Great easy flat paved trail!

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 Trail

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.
