The John T. Nesbitt Loop
One of the most popular facilities offered by the Town of Wrightsville Beach is the John T. Nesbitt Loop. “The Loop” as it is locally addressed, is a walking/jogging looped trail approximately 2.45 miles long that runs along Causeway Drive, across the South Banks Channel Bridge onto the barrier island, along North Lumina Avenue to West Salisbury Street and then swings back until it reconnects with Causeway Drive. The trail provides a paved surface for walking/jogging as well as designated rest areas with water. The trail is approximately 4 feet wide and follows the designated pedestrian sidewalk.
