Things To Do

Climb Big Kill Devil Hill for a breathtaking view of the area from sound to sea. Atop the hill stands the 60 ft. pylon - the site where Wilbur and Orville conducted their glider experiments.
Stand on the same spot where the brothers made their first flights. A large granite boulder marks the spot where the first plane left the ground.
Visit the park via plane and land at the 3,000 ft. First Flight Airstrip. Spend a day visiting the place where flight started.
