You will enjoy this natural surface greenway that links Chapel Hill’s Community Center Park to the University of North Carolina’s Battle Park. Leave Community Center Park, cutting through a residential area before joining the Lower Trail along splashy Battle Branch, which you bridge. Turn west, continuing upstream to meet historic Battle Park, with its trail network. Rock outcrops and big hills will surprise most first-time hikers. Your return route uses the Upper Trail, adding variety to the trek.
