Battle Park, once known as Battle’s Woods, may be the oldest hiking destination in the Chapel Hill area. The 93-acre preserve is named for the student and later president of the University of North Carolina, Kemp Plummer Battle, who back in the 1840s laid out trails along the creek that bears his name.

Today Battle would be proud to know his woods have been turned into a park with trails enough for a rewarding double loop that explores the streams and hills of this wooded swath of the UNC campus, as well as visits the historic outdoor Forest Theater.

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.
