You can reach Cape Point by driving south of Ramp 44 in a permitted off-road vehicle or by walking roughly 1.25 miles from parking area across from Ramp 44. ORV permits are available at www.recreation.gov (search for Cape Hatteras ORV).

On May 23, a protection buffer closed Cape Point to protect two American oystercatcher chicks. Cape Point reopened for ORV access on July 20th.
