This converted rail to trail stretches from Chatham county to Durham county. it's relatively flat and very nicely in the shade. Wide enough to accommodate walkers, bikers, runners, and an occasional horse. This is one of the things the government did well.

If you haven't checked out the American Tobacco Trail, look up the nearest entrance to you and go visit one day with a friend. It's a real neat way to have a smooth walking path through the woods, and it's long. As a woman, I'm not so keen on going alone as there've been some robberies and assaults, but if... More

Pretty busy during the weekend but it is a nice easy trail with fine gravel and flat all the way. Good for a stroll outdoor if you don't mind all the bicycle passing.

The length & width of this trail makes for a very enjoyable place to walk or ride bicycles. Very level without any major inclines to test your strength or endurance. Very pleasant area lined with trees.

Really nice, shady walking trail away from cars. It is not very crowded so it's not recommended for someone walking alone without a friend.

Fantastic walking, running, and biking trail, cutting through the triangle. Flat, well maintained, and cool. Great place to walk your pets while taking in the beatiful scenery of North Carolina. Be sure to follow the "rules of the road" and let your fellow travelers know you are coming up on them!
