This hike through a natural area links up with a city of Durham park to create a wooded and sometimes wet circuit through tall bottomland hardwoods along New Hope Creek. Big trees, brooding streams, and wildflowers in season enhance the experience. A surprising number of boardwalks make the hiking drier and fun for kids of all ages. The walk begins at newer Old Chapel Hill Road Park, where a connecting greenway extends the hiking possibilities.
