Meadowmont Greenway, Chapel Hill, North Carolina NC

Description

Meadowmont Greenway or bike path is a fantastic place to go for a walk! There are houses along the route so it feels safe the entire way. The views vary as you walk; rather than just flat forest all the way like some walks, instead you see flowers, little hilly curves, and a pond with a fountain. The path is one mile one-way. The greenway runs from Meadowmont Park in the north to Raleigh Road in the south. Park along any of the side streets, such as Simerville Road, to access the path.
For a cute detour, walk uphill on Barbee Chapel Rd (stay on the right hand side of the road so you don't have to cross the road at the top where there's no visibility) to Oak Park Lane and walk along Oak Park Lane beside fountains and flowers and adorable townhomes with curved turrets. 
After, you can stop and have a cup of tea at Carolina Bakery or Starbucks in Meadowmont Village, a lovely development with brick buildings, outdoor cafes, and a fountain.
