A Mountain of Sugar


Author(s):
Abstract:
Although not as tall and famous as Jockey's Ridge, Kill Devil Hills's sand dune, Sugarloaf, standing fifty-five feet high at Carolina Beach State Park, has its own appeal, both historically and recreationally. Believed to be 6,000 years old, the dune has been a guide marker for river pilots since 1738. Unlike Jockey's Ridge, Sugarloaf is mostly wooded.
