Currituck County Highpoint Trip Report
Dates: August 8-9, 2006
Spot Elevation on Three Dunes: I told the guard that I wanted to see a model
home (which is funny since I can't even afford an outhouse on the Outer Banks)
and he issued me a visitor pass. Highest dune is next to the house that Mike
Schwartz mentions and has still not been developed.
Luark Hill: I was staying with friends about 4.5 miles due south of Luark Hill.
Worrying about possible access issues, I started the hike from the beach house at 5 am.
I chose tennis shoes for my walk on the beach and only received one blister.
Munson Lane is twice signed "No Trespassing, Violators will be Prosecuted",
so I just stayed off the road and walked over the dunes to the
obvious highest ground. Note that you will be in plain sight of a large beach
house for most of your "summit attempt". If I had my 4wd truck, this hike would
have been reduced to less than a 1/4 mile round trip.
