Activity Overview

Running along a deserted railway initially built for the American Tobacco Company, the American Tobacco Trail provides an excellent setting for biking and jogging for the entire family. This recreational trail is open to runners, walkers, dog walkers, bicyclists as well as horseback riders.

The American Tobacco Trail runs for 23 miles through northeast Chatham County, starting from rural New Hill in western Wake County.

Things to Do

  • Use the detailed map available on the website to determine the best places to park when getting to the American Tobacco Trail by car.
  • If you want to run on gravel, the New Hope Church road is the part of the trail you should try.
  • Various charity events take place on a regular basis at the American Tobacco Trail, so you can choose to participate either running or biking.

American Tobacco Trail Insider Tips

  • The American Tobacco Trail is rather remote, so bringing your own water is highly recommended.
  • The trail is well-maintained and there are mile markers every quarter mile.
  • The trail passes into the game lands maintained by the NC Wildlife Resource Commission. This means that hunters may use the trail to access the game lands.
