Battle Park Hike - Chapel Hill

The Sisters' garden is open and looking beautiful.  No azaleas yet, but the tulips are gorgeous! 

We will hike from the Chapel Hill Community Center across Battle Park to the Forest Theater on the UNC campus, down to Gimghoul Castle, around the Lovers' Loop and back to the Community Center.

Optionally, we can reconvene somewhere close for lunch after the hike.

•Level of Hike: Moderate – We will be taking this hike at about 2.5 MPH, which means we won’t be strolling, but we won’t be running either. •Terrain: This hike is on wooded trails and the path has roots and rocks. There are a few hills on this hike, but nothing too strenuous. •Footwear: Hiking boots recommended but sturdy outdoor shoes will do. •Distance: About 5 miles with shorter options available. •Dog Policy: Dogs are allowed on the trail, but must be on a leash no more than 6 feet and only 1 dog per person please. And please be prepared to pick up after any "accidents" on the trail. Remember to bring water with you for this hike. Water and restrooms are available at the Community Center. DIRECTIONS: The Community Center is across and down Estes Drive from University Mall. To get complete directions from your location, use your favorite mapping program and type in the address: 120 S Estes Drive, Chapel Hill, NC 27514.
