Map Online July 6 & Free Printed Map Now In Multiple Business Locations
Cyclists and hikers in the Bull City now have an updated resource in print, and will soon have one online later this week, thanks to the just-released 2018 edition of the Durham Bike & Hike Map.

The map also provides riding tips and other resources. For hikers, the map highlights popular trails in Durham, and provides information on parks and recreation opportunities. Among the areas highlighted are trails along the Eno River, the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, Hollow Rock Nature Park, and Little River Regional Park.Read more
