Carolina North Forest
Enjoy a visit to 750 acres of woodlands located on the University of North Carolina’s Carolina North campus, nestled between the towns of Chapel Hill and Carrboro. For more than thirty years, the Carolina North Forest (also known as the Horace Williams Tract) has offered the University, Chapel Hill and Carrboro communities a tranquil natural oasis in which to recreate, relax, and enjoy a respite from the area’s ever-changing urban landscape.
This website describes an active management plan and activities associated with responsibly managing the Carolina North Forest. Here you’ll find the latest news regarding events and opportunities the Forest offers as well as maps and photos of our on-going efforts to steward the forest and enhance user experiences.
