American Tobacco Trail Connects Apex to Durham

American Tobacco Trail Connects Apex to Durham

I hear alot of people that move to the area or visit the Raleigh / Durham area for the first time say that  it doesn't feel like a large metropolitan area.  I like to respond to that by saying the developers of the Triangle have done a great job in building the city around nature rather destroying nature, building, and then planting it all back.  

The American Tobacco Trail is one of best hidden gems that make the Triangle area such a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family.  The 22+ mile trail that works it way through 3 counties (Durham, Chatham and Wake County).  Known as a rails to trails project because it follows the originally developed path for the old New Hope Valley Railroad, visitors can enjoy walking, running, biking, and in the southern section near Apex, you can also enjoy horseback riding.......you provide the horse. :)

The ATT is getting closer to completion as a foot bridge is under construction to go over I-40 at The Streets of SouthPoint.  Once complete, you will be able to take the trail from its southern starting point in Apex (New Hill/Olive Chapel Rd) all the way to its northern end near the Durham Bulls Ballpark in downtown Durham.

Get out this weekend, hit the trail, enjoy mother nature and get to living the Good Life.
