The Battle Park trail is a great hidden gem in the middle of Chapel Hill. For this event we will plan to hike from the Chapel Hill Community Center across Battle Park to the Forest Theater on the UNC campus and back to the Community Center.
Optionally, we can reconvene somewhere close for lunch after the hike.
