The "must-see" sights were the historical museum, the Maxton Plains, and the fossil ledges. The museum was actually closed so that left the other two sights. A short drive led me to the Maxton Plains and they really weren't that exciting to me. I walked through them a little bit and didn't see anything that would make them a must see sight for me. From the Maxton Plains, the fossil ledges were only about 5 miles away. However, the road was loose with tons of large rocks. It was a terrible road for driving, biking, or walking, but driving seemed to be the best choice. After the treacherous drive, I don't think the fossil ledges were worth it. While it was a beautiful and unique scene, there wasn't anything particularly striking about it. Once at this beach, you could along it shores in both directions for a total of up to a mile according to the website.
Aside from the "must-see" sights, the website also mentioned that a hike could be from the Glen Cove Beach to the Marble Head Viewpoint. To be continued...
