Cameron Woods is situated in ZIP code 27705. This North Carolina neighborhood is just south of Judea Reform Congregation and the Duke University Golf Club. Boundaries of the neighborhood are Montcastle Court to the north, Alderman Lane to the west, Lindenshire Drive to the east and Pickett Road to the south. It is directly east of the Duke University Medical Center.
The neighborhood is an upscale subdivision of single-family homes situated on winding streets and cul-de-sacs. The homes are close together but have immaculately landscaped front yards. Although the area behind this residential area is made up of woods, only the rear part of any of the homes actually backs out onto the woods, and some homes have actual back and front yards.
The winding roads and quaint cul-de-sacs give the community a real neighborhood feel. While there are no real sidewalks, traffic is probably sufficiently limited to allow residents to walk around in the neighborhood.
People who enjoy jogging or walking can take advantage of the scenery along the Al Buehler Cross Country Trail. The trail begins directly north of the Duke University Golf Club on Cameron Boulevard and Science Drive. It extends for more than three miles on a gravel surface and goes around both the Duke Inn and the Duke University Golf Course. The trail is named for former Duke track coach and six-time Atlantic Coast Conference champion, Al Buehler.
A more ambitious trail is the American Tobacco Trail. It runs from downtown Durham to North Carolina Highway 54 and consists of 12 miles of trails. It continues from Massey Chapel Road to the Durham/Chatham County line. It is a wonderfully scenic and challenging trail for biking, hiking, running, and walking and is one of the many free attractions in Durham.
