Lower Booker Creek Greenway, Chapel Hill, North Carolina NC

Description

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. Also, the vegetation is just straight up and down trees, not anything lush or viney.
After, have a pastry and coffee at Guglhupf Bake Shop or a cocktail on the sunny patio of Babalu, in Eastgate Crossing Plaza, which is across Franklin Street from the trail entrance.
