    Great location, staff was wonderful. They were very helpful and remembered me from one day to the next. The cookies were some of the best I've eaten. Only negative thing is the check in counter and the restroom counter in my room were really high.

    You can't beat the location of The Franklin. It is right in the heart of downtown Chapel Hill, walking distance to UNC and multiple restaurants and bars. The rooms are well appointed, comfortable and clean.

    When I was there I did a run roughly following the Pumpkin Loop in the Carolina North Forest. You can just Google for it. That was a nice run in forest surroundings, slightly hilly, relatively smooth gravel surface.
