Great easy hike in Chapel Hill, lets you get away from it all, runs from the Community Center to the edge of Battle Park and combined with Forest Theater and surrounding trails makes a really nice outing. Good for trail runs, dog walks and nature trips, enjoy!

More than a stroll but less than a full on hike, this little ditty takes you from Park to Forest back to Park again, ending in the UNC campus, were you were a short walk from a brewski. Beware the copperheads and bumblebees, The latter being more common.

Yes it was muddy after 8-9 days of raining, but it's passable. I knocked one star off because as you get farther down the trail, it stops telling you where to go in the forks. You have to figure it out on your own. I made it to the Battle Park and walked all the trails in there until I reached another park entrance (Botanical Gardens?). It was after hiking down from solitary hill. That was 3.17 miles round trip.

Pleasant trail, bubbling stream, several side trails, some elevation changes.
