Tar Heels and Franklin Street, Chapel Hill is a 3.3 mile loop trail located near Chapel Hill, NC and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for walking and trail running and is accessible year-round.
Just minutes from the UNC campus, but feels very remote. Nice creek views.
When I lived in Chapel Hill, this was one of my favorite hikes, as it winds through the campus and all its wonderful yet slightly dangerous brick sidewalks due to roots pushing the bricks up at odd and uneven angles. A favorite past time is sitting on franklin Street watching the Carolina freshman trip on the uplifted bricks. Good times.
