Hello denisegB8911ZJ, Yes, our location in downtown Franklin Street is our most compelling feature. I hope that your student chooses UNC for their college experience - as a UNC alumni owned and operated hotel, we can't help but be a little biased! Jay

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.
