America's Scenic Byways

North Durham Country Byway

27 miles - 45 minutes

This byway meanders in and out of the back country roads just north of the city of Durham. Travel this byway to glimpse Durham's beautiful countryside, waterways, and historic plantation farmlands.

The backroads of Durham County explore the history of the southern gentry as well as the history of the slave in places like Stagville and Fairntosh plantations.

Nature and wildlife are thriving in the Hill Demonstration Forest. An alternate route for the byway goes through this area where travelers will have a chance to see birds and lush vegetation.
