Third Fork Creek Trail Description

The Third Fork Creek Trail offers a paved 3.5-mile route through southwestern Durham. The trail begins at Southern Boundaries Park and continues through a pleasantly wooded corridor to its end at Garrett Road Park. Across the street from the park is CE Jordan High School. This southern end of the trail also skirts the busy Woodcroft Shopping Center.

Future plans call for connecting the trail to the American Tobacco Trail, a popular 22-mile route that links several other trails in the area.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Southern Boundaries Park (100 3rd Fork Rd.) on the north end of the trail and at Garrett Road Park (6815 Garrett Rd.) on the southern end of the trail.
