It's an OK go-to trail for running if you live in the neighborhood, but it has gotten a lot more crowded since the pandemic. People are lax about wearing a mask, even though there are signs everywhere claiming they are required. I fault Duke for having conflicting messages about this on their website. If you are a runner and tired of dodging huge packs of walkers or dogs on retractable leashes, there are much better options: Duke Forest, American Tobacco Trail, the Eno trails, and several land conservancy trails, just to name a few.

I go there when I feel alone. You will see many people of all age color and shape getting their fitness on. Kind of motivating.

It’s good for running and others but it’s hard to look for a parking spot

Great flat walk in town. Nice gravel but watch out for glass. Pretty busy but lots of open space. Not great for an excitable or anxious dog.

Big, beautiful squared green space with Duke Unv. buildings centrally located and lots of trees which we are walking under in the mid morning dew bc the perimeter walled path, although wide and nicely kept with fine gravel, is for the most part, not shaded and is too hot for my doggo in this summer heat. Only a few gnats under trees, no mosquitos, so we are super happy!

Nice flat walk, packed gravel is easy to walk on, and lighted for evening walks. Some sections can be muddy after a rain storm. Finding parking can be difficult. Grass not trimmed and a lot of glass on the sidewalks. Be careful of pups paws.

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.

First to Review

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
