Shepherd Nature Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This is an opportunity to learn about the landscape of the Piedmont while stretching your legs. Set in the Durham Division of the Duke Forest, this loop explores a stream cutting through a swath of undeveloped woods, despite urbanization all around it. The walk, great for kids of all ages, is dotted with interpretive signage and information about the natural world. The Shepherd Nature Trail is your learning conduit. It ends near a picnic shelter ideal for outdoor dining. Next, join a doubletrack path as it rolls through small watersheds divided by hills, making your way back to the trailhead."
