Celebrate the Year of the Trail with a Pirate Treasure Hunt Hike in Surf City on April 29.

As part of the Year of the Trail celebration, a band of pirates will lead the Pirate Treasure Hunt Hike in Surf City’s Soundside Park on April 29.

“Pirate legend and lore is a part of Pender County’s history,” says Tammy Proctor, Pender County Tourism director. “It’s only fitting that a troupe of pirates take us along a path of hidden treasure.”

The event is free of charge. Please note that pets are prohibited on hikes.
