    Someone just posted this on Expedition Portal. Here is a link for the new proposed ORV regulations for the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. You will have a chance to post a comment if needed as the comment period is currently open.

    It looks like you will have to purchase an ORV use permit to be able to drive on the beach. Not sure if this applies to Oregon Inlet and/or Corolla/Carova Beach driving.

    Agreed. I doubt it will be that expensive. Probably <$5 day

    I was just reading about this BS today. Haven't been able to find any info on fines if you don't get a permit. Wonder which is cheaper - the permit or the fine? Might be worth risking it. The many times I've driven out to Oregon Inlet, I've yet to see any park rangers (has been a while since I've been down there though). Guess I'll stick to driving up to the Carova beaches - those are still free.

    Oh and to any Toyota driver that goes down there, be prepared for the possibility of confrontation. There's some animosity because Toyota apparently donated $1 million to the Audubon Society - the ones that fought for this crap.

    You can rest assure that you'll see more park rangers once the permitting is implemented!

    National Park Service News Release FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: DATE: April 9, 2012 CONTACT: 252-473-2111 Cape Point Temporarily Closes to ORV Access Acting Superintendent Paul Stevens announces the temporary off-road vehicle(ORV) and pedestrian access closure of Cape Point area in accordance withthe requirements of the ORV Management Plan for Cape Hatteras NationalSeashore. On April 8, 2012, just south of Ramp 44 along the ocean shoreline, NationalPark Service staff observed piping plover breeding behavior which resultedin the closure. The width of the beach is very narrow in the area commonlyknown as "the bypass" and the required buffer of 75-meters to the eastresulted in the full beach closure. There currently is not an alternativeORV access route or shoreline pedestrian access through the resourceclosure to Cape Point. For more information on beach access, check Google Earth maps at:http://www.nps.gov/caha/planyourvisit/googleearthmap.htm or call252-473-2111, ext. 148. -NPS-
