This track represents two days of paddling from New Bern, NC to Oyster Point campground in the Croatan National Forest.  On the third day of paddling, the trip concluded at Harkers Island visitor center but the final leg of the GPS tracking is, unfortunately, not available.  A full trip report is available at the following link:

This trip can involve very choppy and large wind-driven waves.  Parts of the paddle are also influenced by tidal currents.  Paddling skills should be at intermediate and advanced levels before attempting.
