Umstead. If you live around the Triangle it’s definitely worth the drive, but I wouldn’t recommend coming from out of town for it. I just wish it had more elevation, but that’s hard to find in this area of NC. My other favorite trails around here are the ones wrapping around Falls Lake. (Again, no real elevation, but they do have good scenery.)

I’m a lawyer and teacher from North Carolina. I write about sobriety, mental health, running, and more. Buy me a “coffee” at ko-fi.com/benyaclark.
