The Fan Branch Trail is a pave hike and bike trail cutting through the Southern Village neighborhood of Chapel Hill. It's 10-feet wide and kicks off at the Southern Community Park, which features a playground, athletic fields, meadows and a dog park. The park also features a fitness installation along the trail, with multiple workout stations. The paved pathway travels behind the Mary Scroggs Elementary School before emerging from the park. At Graylyn Drive and Edgewater Circle is the Fan Branch Pocket Park which includes a children's play area. The trail parallels Edgewater Circle and then dips back into a wooded area, up to Culbreth Road and ends at its intersection with another local trail, the Morgan Creek Trail.
Park at the Southern Community Park. The northern entrance is at 100 Sumac Road, and the southern entrance is at the dog park (1000 Dogwood Acres Drive).
