Weymouth Woods-Sandhills Nature Preserve

1024 Ft. Bragg Road

Weymouth Woods Sandhills Nature Preserve is a unique window onto the longleaf pine forests that once covered millions of acres in the southeastern U.S. The lanky pines – some of them hundreds of years old – tower over expanses of wiregrass and rare and intriguing species, including the red-cockaded woodpecker, pine barrens tree frog, bog spicebush, fox squirrel and myriad wildflowers. A network of short, easy trails provides an outdoor classroom for ranger-led hikes that teach about this ecology or for quiet contemplation. With limited understory, the forest is a natural theater for birding and viewing wildlife. The visitor center’s museum-quality exhibits explore the longleaf forest, its flora and fauna and its unique history.

It was a pleasant visit. Went with someone in a wheelchair. Very wheelchair friendly...looking forward to checking out the trails one day. We watched the birds through the windows at the "Discovery" room...I think that's what it was called. Veey cool

Great place to go to get some fresh air, and the night walks are so much fun for the whole family!! The bathrooms are very nice and they do a good job at keeping them clean. The discovery room is fun for all kids from babies to teens!

Beautiful! The discovery room is clearly intended for children, but offered me lots of wonderful things to experience as well. We wandered through the trails and saw a large number of critters: a lizard, a swimming snake, a toad right on our path, and many birds and insects. The trails are pretty rude see, but clearly well-maintained to remove debris so hikers can have a chance to look around a bit. I'm definitely looking forward to visiting again!

We went on the Blue Triangle trail, the woods were pretty but is definitely NOT stroller friendly. We have pretty heavy duty strollers and there were so many roots that were sticking out of the trail that the large wheels couldn't roll over. In fact the last section is almost straight up hill with so many roots it's almost like stairs. A great workout for someone without kiddos
