Things to Do in Hatteras: Running & Walking

Running and walking for exercise are two of the favorite things to do in Hatteras. What could be more enjoyable than running, walking and hiking on Hatteras Island? This flat island is perfect for these activities as long as you find the right place to do them. The 70 miles of beach are great for running and walking, and there are fabulous hiking trails in many areas. Road running and walking is best on the side streets or along the paved bike paths in Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo and Avon; running and walking is not recommended on busy N.C. Highway 12 between the villages.
