    Link to map here.

    Patsy Pond Nature Trail is part of Croatan National Forest. It winds through an area referred to as Long leaf Pine Flat Woods, which is an open woodland of long leaf pines with low growing herbs and shrubs. There are natural ponds and sinkholes, native flora and fauna along the trails. There are 3 loops - short loop - .75 mile, medium loop = 1 mile and the long loop = 1.9 miles. This is an interpretive trail. Numbered signs correspond to brochures available at Trailhead and at NC Coastal Federation office. The NC Coastal Federation organized the development of this trail.

    This is a very easy trail to hike and is on the sandy side and over all very flat. There are some ponds along the hike.
