Duke University: Al Buehler Cross Country Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Explore the grounds of the Duke University campus on this mostly gravel cross-country trail that winds through the forest surrounding the Washington Duke Inn and golf course. Adjacent to the Duke Forest, this cross-country trail is a perfect choice for runners and walkers. The route follows the Al Buehler Cross Country Trail main loop and starts from the main parking lot, just off Cameron Boulevard near the junction with University Boulevard. The trail is extremely popular, and the parking lot fills easily. Another lot is farther down Cameron Boulevard to the west, just past the business school. Venture through the forest and across winding streams before heading south as the path follows alongside the US 15-501 Bypass. Throughout the trail you will get glimpses of long expanses of the golf course; you may even have the opportunity to judge golfers’ swings as you walk along the trail circling the impressive course."
