Bolin Creek Trail is a 3-mile out and back multipurpose trail in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The paved trail begins at Community Center Park and heads west, then ducks under the Franklin St. bridge. It cuts through the riparian forest, providing a cool, shaded ride on a mostly level path. The trail crosses Bolinwood Drive, and there is a slight incline up to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. At present, this is where the trail ends but construction is underway to extend it to Umstead Park, with a hope to ultimately connect to the natural surface Tanyard Branch Trail. If you are looking for a longer excursion, you might connect to the unpaved Battle Branch Trail at Community Center Park.
Park at Chapel Hill Community Center (120 S Estes Dr.) if starting from the east end. There are restrooms at the park, as well as picnic amenities and sports fields. If starting from the west end, there is parking available on Bolinwood Drive.
