NATIONAL PARK SERVICE CAPE HATTERAS TRAIL

SCOPE

Cape Hatteras National Seashore is a National Park in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, preserving over 70 miles of shoreline. The National Park is well known for its historic lighthouse, built in 1803 and moved 2,900 feet in 1999 due to rising sea levels. Visitors to the park frequently utilize the road within the park for walking and biking to the visitor center and shoreline.

Foresite was contracted through an architect to assist in designing a phased multiuse trail adjacent to the roadway with features such as exhibits, benches, and bike racks. Foresite’s scope included a site visit, participation in design meetings, schematic layout of the trail, a master graphic of the trail alignment, and graphic enlargements for public promotion.
