Lower Booker Creek Greenway, Chapel Hill, North Carolina NC


The Lower Booker Creek Greenway or bike path is a one-mile straight shady path beneath forest trees behind houses. It is fairly empty but has some evening and weekend dog walkers and bike riders. Sewer cylinders kind of ruin the ambience and smell absolutely vile in summer. There aren't many interesting features to this path since it's just straight and flat with nothing but trees and no view of the creek.
After, have a pastry and coffee at Guglhupf Bake Shop or a cocktail on the sunny patio of Babalu, in Eastgate Crossing Plaza, which you can walk to from the trail.

The southern end of Lower Booker Creek Trail can be accessed from Franklin Street where it intersects with Eastgate Shopping Center Dr. It can be hot if you park at the shopping center and wait at the light to cross the street, then walk the first part of the trail that has no shade. 
2198 Markham Dr is a good place to park and enter at the shady middle part of the trail.
