Craven County Highpoint Trip Report

I got permission from the very-friendly Effy Wood to visit the three sandy areas. Be aware that the hog pen closest to the road is active, so I'd recommend parking away from there. The dunes are truly remarkable and are fun to explore. I thought the one closest to Mrs. Wood's residence was the highest. Mrs. Wood's brother drove out there while I was on the dunes, very curious as to what I was doing. He turned out to be very friendly and tickled that he owned half of Craven county's highest point. I gave him my topo map and was on my way.
