The seasonal ORV access for beaches in front of the villages of Hatteras Island will close for the summer season starting on Thursday, April 15.
These routes, which run parallel to the towns of Hatteras, Frisco, Avon, and the Tri-villages, open to ORVs annually in the winter months when the visitor population is low, and close from April until October.
ORV access will reopen in front of the villages on October 15, 2021.
With the spring nesting season in full swing, temporary seashore closures may be more frequent, which includes a recent corridor to Cape Point that was established last week.
Beachgoers can check on updates to current beach access via the Cape Hatteras National Seashore website at https://www.nps.gov/caha/planyourvisit/conditions.htm.
