LOL. I understand and do pick up after my dog if he poops in a common area. But I'll be damned if I'm going to pick up his poop and carry it with me the rest of the day if he poops in the woods off the beaten path.

Durant Nature Park has miles and miles of trails. A good kiddie area, a lake, etc. It's a dog's dream world. You could spend all day there.

There are usually plenty of trashcans in the parks.

Raven Rock State Park is the closest thing to an actual "hike" around here. Most of the other suggestions are more like a stroll through the woods.

Another option for a walk would be Eno River State Park in Durham. Note that some trails might require you to ford the river (at very shallow spots) or walk a hanging bridge - some of which a dog might not like.

A little farther away but Linville gorge is a great place.

If you're in Chapel Hill/Carrboro you might like to check out the Carolina North Forest trails, the Battle Park trails, or the NC Botanical Garden Trails, or Occoneechee Mountain in Hillsborough.

Occoneechee Mountain is a great great hike. Not too hard, just enough to be fun.

one further away - not for this trip but after you move here - Moses Cone Park off the Blue Ridge Parkway. I've gone there for a day trip (it's 3 hours from Durham). There are a lot of trails, people wit horses, a gift shop - and of course the BRP itself. Wonderful!
