Directions from Durham, NC: From I-85 South to Durham, take Cole Mill exit, turn right, after 5 miles road will enter the park. From I-85 North, take Exit 170 between Hillsborough and Durham. Make a U-turn after coming off the exit ramp, go under the interstate a quarter mile, turn right on Pleasant Green Road, then turn left at intersection with Cole Mill Road. Once you cross the Eno River you will see parking on your left. Park there and begin on Pea Creek Trail which is across the road from the parking and picnic area. Travel Pea Creek Trail in either direction to reach Dunnagan's Trail.
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.
