    Peaceful but very flat and wide. This is a wonderful running & biking trail. Smooth dirt and part is paved but very long to ride bike or keep walking/running for a long time.

    While this trail is mostly paved, it feels like a remote hiking trail in places as the former rail line cuts south from downtown Durham. Far south you'll find the most rural sections where it's not unusual to see riders on horses.
