Robeson Creek Greenway

This past weekend my daughter, the pups and I headed out on an adventure! We just had to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather and decided to see about this trail we drive by all the time in downtown Pittsboro.

I came to find that the trail is named the Robeson Creek Greenway (thank you, Iris).

I parked by the Circle K gas station at 265 Sanford Road and we headed over to the trail. My daughter, Izabel, noticed the bridge and the water! I swear she’s part fish. So we headed over to investigate under and around the bridge.

To help you plan ahead

Mosquito annoyance was minimal as it’s winter.

Looks like plenty of shade in summer, but we didn’t have the luxury of leaves.

There are no public restrooms. Pets are allowed. Graveled path and very level making this trail stroller friendly. Pack your own lunches and snacks as there isn’t food on site.

Location: Trailhead is located near 266 Sanford Rd, Pittsboro, NC 27312.

Details: This is a very easy to navigate the trail, some areas may be washed out but still easy to travel. There are several benches along the path to sit and enjoy. The trail is about 1/2 mile one way.

I was pleasantly surprised when we came across a bridge but then we were left with the decision, left or right?  Izabel chose right and we were off to see where that took us.
A short walk later and the trail landed us at S Small Street. As far as I could tell the trail ended here. After a short break enjoying the sun on our faces, we headed back to the car.The Pittsboro Parks Blog has more information on this trail and how it came to be!  I agree with them that this site has great potential for a park… I think a dog park would be perfect!
