The autumn color change comes late to the coastal plain of North Carolina. The Island Creek Walk trail is located in the Croatan National Forest between New Bern and Polloksville. It is a somewhat unique terrain for eastern NC. Rather than the usual pine forest it is a deciduous woodland area with limestone outcroppings. When visiting this area I have seen both Whitetail Deer and Black Bear, plus the ever present Gray Squirrel. Flora includes Bald Cypress, Sweet Gum, Tulip and other trees.
