Trails range from easy to moderate. We live very nearby so know all the trails by heart. If you're in the area and want to work off some calories from Durham eateries, this is a great pro to do it in!

A short drive from Durham, 15-20 minutes depending where in Durham you're coming from. Good for a walk and a picnic. Didn't try out the hiking trails.

It doesn't matter what trail you take, they all have their uniqueness about them. Either hiking along the river itself or on the ridges above, you will feel like you are alone with nature. Great flora and sometimes fauna will come your way. Best spot...More

Hi 10traci, There are no hours posted. There are no lights, so I suggest a daytime trip.
How can I get a map of hiking trails? What hikes are best if one wants them to be easy and scenic?
