Description

The Third Fork Creek Trail is a fantastic addition to the trail system in Durham. Called the North-South Greenway, this trail curves along the Third Fork Creek in the southern part of Durham. The trail is well-maintained and mostly flat, with some small challenging hills on the northern and southern part of this trail.

Even though the trail starts at Garrett Park across from Jordan High School, and travels along Woodcroft Parkway for a half mile, nature is very close. Once you cross, Woodcroft Parkway, the trail is well-marked and easy to run, jog, or hike. With the tree cover, the trail is nearly 100% covered on the southern end, until crossing South Roxboro Street.
