From the Jan. 1, 2016, WECT NBC TV (Wilmington, N.C.) "NC parks celebrate centennial anniversary with hikes" by Brandon Joyner.
Walks were held at 46 sites across the state to celebrate the beginning of the North Carolina State Parks' 100th anniversary.
At Fort Fisher, Park Trooper Patrick Amico guided one for two miles from the Visitors Center to an observation deck and back.
Further to the north, another two mile hike took place at Carolina Beach State Park from the Marina Trailhead to Sugarloaf Dune and back. Sugarloaf Dune was the site of a major Confederate camp during the war.
