DescriptionThere are lots of options for long runs of 6 to13 miles between Duck and Southern Shores. Running north to south (south to north) take the bike path along Duck Road/Ocean Boulevard,
Sea Oats Trail, Hillcrest, and/or Dogwood Trails. At the furthest point from Duck, you will come to the Marketplace (shopping area) where there are restrooms and drinking fountain inside
the grocery store or plenty of parking should you decide to begin and end your run from here. Be adventurous -- most of the little loops and courts bring you back to one of the main streets
that run north to south. The combination of the higher elevations and the wooded areas of Southern Shores makes for a nice mix to protect from sun and WIND!

All of this is contained on the west side of Route 12 (Duck Road/Ocean Boulevard) if you are trying to see it on a map. A few connections are made by accessing short sections of bike paths, allowing
you to run a route that a car can not map out for you!
