Minutes from Durham, Hillsborough, and Chapel Hill the Eno River State Park offers secluded wilderness trails with the serenity of a clear river drifting and cascading over a rocky stream bed. The Eno River is a swift, shallow stream flowing from northwest Orange County into Durham County for 33 miles where it joins the Flat River to become the Neuse and flows into Falls Lake. Its waters roll through wilderness, passing historic mill sites, river bluffs covered with flowering shrubs, and fords used by early settlers. Rains can turn the river into a raging torrent, yet it quickly settles into a gentle current. It is a chain of rapids, pools, and riffles meandering through forest on a bed of rock. The valley of the river is narrow and steep walled. The rugged landscape is carved and sculpted by swift flowing water. Eno River State Park lies here, in the beauty of more than 3900 acres of natural resources. Five accesses Cabe Lands, Cole Mill, Fews Ford, Pleasant Green, and Pump Station offer entry into this largely unspoiled river environment.

This is a great area to stretch your legs for an afternoon. Easy to locate, non intensive, and beautifully situated.

I'm happy to report my family and I explored this trail today. They did amazing! We had such a good time and it was beautiful! My husband and I had our three youngest children with us ages 4, 6 and 9. I thought it was going to be a little challenging for them but they didn't complain once. We are already making plans to come back and go camping.

Great hike. I love the large swimming hole.

At the split, go left to go down to the river follow along the river and then back up the loop along the low ridge. Grave site is near the end. I take my doggy swimming when we get down to the river. Perfect for a 45 min walk in the woods.

Nice moderate hike. Great scenery!
