    The Franklin is an ideal hotel to stay at if you have business in the Chapel Hill area. As it is situated downtown, it is easy walking distance from great restaurants and pubs. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

    When I was there I did a run roughly following the Pumpkin Loop in the Carolina North Forest. You can just Google for it. That was a nice run in forest surroundings, slightly hilly, relatively smooth gravel surface.
