Dittmer-Watts Nature Trail Park

Our four-legged hikers are especially fond of  the cool, shaded trails of Dittmer-Watts  Nature Trail

Dittmer-Watts Nature Trail Park encompasses ten interconnecting trails totaling 3.30 miles of natural surface trails of varying difficulty over rolling terrain.  It was constructed in 2006 on a portion of the unused wooded property of the municipal golf course.

The trail head is on NC9 highway across from Ingles Markets. The trail head has graveled parking for approximately 20 vehicles. The trails are wide, family friendly, dog-friendly, and well marked.

Strategically located along the trails are benches, a covered picnic shelter and several other picnic areas.

Unlike the vista views found throughout Morse Park, this park offers a more intimate exchange with nature through a woodland hike experience. It is an ideal spot for bird enthusiasts, couples and pet owners. As is the case with all of the town's parks, there is no camping allowed and pet owners are required to clean up after their dog and keep it under control at all times.
