This nature preserve, owned and administered by UNCW, comprises 174 acres of lush woodland with educational displays and ten miles of hiking trails. One of these trails meanders along the banks of the beautiful Town Creek. Among the many natural points of interest is an old tar kiln of the type once ubiquitous throughout the region. Suitable for families, the preserve is open during daylight hours seven days a week. Picnic tables and a restroom are available, and there's an onsite caretaker. Don't forget the camera and lunch. Admission is free.
