  • On site Information Centers.. Trail Kiosks

    From Merriam-Webster....noun.... ki osk

    a small structure that provides information and services on a computer screen

    Well, the three kiosk on the NT are small structures and they do provide information, just not via a computer screen. These are the old fashion types that contain maps and other printed information about the trail.

    There are 3 kiosk located along the NT and two on the Weetock Trail. The Carteret County Wildlife Club built the 3 on the NT and an Eagle Scout built the two found on the Weetock Trail.

    The kiosk located on the NT are at at the Oyster Point trail head, the Hwy 101 parking lot and the Hwy 306 ( Ferry Rd ) parking lot.

    The kiosk located on the Weetock trail are the east and west trail heads. At this time the Carteret County Wildlife Club does not maintain or provide information for these kiosk.

    Each kiosk on the NT contains a set of maps of the trail and some brochures about hiking the trail. The maps in the kiosk's are marked with a "You Are Here" annotation to show you where the kiosk you are at is located along the trail.

    The kiosk were built at Gene Huntsman's house, taken apart and then transported to their new homes and reassembled and installed.


    The kiosk at the Hwy 101 parking lot was first located on the north side of Hwy 101 and then relocated by the Hwy 101 parking lot once the new parking lot was completed.


    To date, two of the kiosk's have been vandalize, locks cut and information removed. Fortunately I keep the brochures and maps on my computer so I was able to get new ones made up to replace the ones that were stolen. I get the maps and brochures printed and laminated locally.
