Jockey's Ridge State Park - Nagshead












Jockey's Ridge is a GIANT sand dune with access to it on the Sound side of Nagshead.  There is an information center (with bathrooms and gift shop) but the major attraction is the dune itself.  There is a handicapped accessible ramp to a spot with an excellent view...but at the end of that ramp you can access the area where you can climb to see both the Atlantic Ocean and the Currituck Sound from the same vantage point.... well worth the climb.


On the ocean side of the dune right on Highway 58 is a kite and outdoor shop that provides rentals to try some of the more adventurous activities like hang-gliding.....lessons offered as well.
