Al Buehler Cross Country Trail

The exercise loop of the Al Buehler Trail is currently under construction. We thank you for your patience while we remove the old equipment, clean and grade surfaces, repair culverts, and install new equipment. We hope you will enjoy the new exercise loop and the new equipment.


The Al Buehler Cross Country Trail is a gravel running and walking course located around the perimeter of the Washington Duke Golf Course. Although not technically part of the Duke Forest, the trail is maintained by the Office of the Duke Forest as a service to the University and the Durham community.

Unsanctioned Race events  
As of June 1, 2014 the Office of the Duke Forest will no longer administer races on the Al Buehler Trail.  If another entity at Duke is found to serve in this capacity, their information will be posted here.
