Seasonal ORV routes along the beaches in front of the villages of Hatteras Island and the Ocracoke Campground will reopen for the off-season on Sunday, October 15.
These routes, which run parallel to the villages of Hatteras, Frisco, Avon, and the Tri-villages, open to ORVs annually in the winter months when the visitor population is lower. The routes are closed in the summer season, from April 15 until October 15, when there are more pedestrians on the shoreline.
The seasonal routes can be accessed via ramps 23, 34, 38, 49, 55, and 68
A complete list of ramps open to ORVs, as well as current conditions and recent updates, can be found on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore’s website at https://www.nps.gov/caha/planyourvisit/conditions.htm.
