The American Tobacco Trail extends uninterrupted from Durham more than 22 miles south through Chatham County to its southern terminus in Wake County.
The trail surface is asphalt from its northern end to New Hope Church Road and has stone dust from its southern end to Scott King Road. The southern stretch of the American Tobacco Trail is open to equestrians.
The trail courses through beautiful pines, and its rural sections boast plentiful wildlife, including beavers, herons, hawks, songbirds, vultures, owls, turtles, and deer. While hunters use the southern portions to access wildlife areas, they are not allowed to carry loaded firearms on the trail.
