My older daughter spent three weeks last summer on the Duke East Campus taking a summer course. The rest of the family had fun on our two visits walking and exploring the area, as well as the larger West Campus.
Great place for jog or casual walk. Trail access located right across from Whole Foods and it's a perfect place to get some exercise on your lunch break. Can get somewhat crowded but people are always friendly and you should always feel safe here. Only downside is the trail is not paved but rather dirt/gravel. Also they are currently building what seems to be a new sports facility within the loop which occupies a huge space and takes away from the aesthetics
