To Do Map

The rangers told us that this was a better trail then heading to see the “falls” surfing the winter. So glad we listened. Our Saint Bernard, Ginger; got so much love from everyone. We loved seeing all the families our hiking ! Perfectly marked and thanks for the stairs!

Great moderate trail. Challenge due to the roots on the trail. Not recommended for trail runners, but there is a camp site made to hike out to. It’s relatively seclusive but a little busy on the weekends. Tail consists of various mediums from clay and mud to sand and dirt with some rocks here and there. Good hiking boots to avoid twisting an ankle.

My favorite trail so far in this area. It’s rated as moderate but depending on what shape you’re in it might be easier or more difficult. Lots of up and down and it was nice being on an actual trail as opposed to black top. One downer is the trail was hard to find in a few places and was muddy in a few spots although easy enough to walk around the mud. Highly recommend it.

Really nice trail, even in the cold weather. Went with my dog and we didn’t see a single person on the trail. It was very muddy so beware. We added a little more time on our trail which was a nice little treat.

enjoyed this hike just before Christmas

I enjoyed this trail. I did get a little lost down by the water when the trail was flooded, but it took me about 15 minutes to figure it out. Other than that, I was back on trail. Was a nice variety of ups and downs. Crossed a few creeks and it wasn't too bad with all the rain we've had. Was muddy in spots but not too bad.

Good for a local trail. It should be rated easy. It has mild rolling hills and good exposure to Lake Jordan. There was too much litter, but the area has just experienced two hurricanes and lots of flash flooding, this year. I think it would be great for mountain biking (with mild pruning in one or two areas) or trail runs. Some trees could fall at any time which may pose a potential safety risk. With a little TLC, this trail would make for great hiking, biking, camping, kayaking, or trail running.

Recommended packing list:
- Trash Bags to help clean up the trail

First time to this park. Great, clearly marked trails and not too difficult. If the park office is open while you are there, definitely check it out!

Under water at one point but you can pass if you go off the trail or you can go right through the water like I did. Also a little muddy and slippery throughout. All in all it was a fun trail

First time going to this park and the trail was a lot of fun to run!!!!

Full loop is now open again. There are still some small sections that are really muddy but you can easily go around them.

If you go in December 2018, it is super wet but you can complete it.

I walked the blue trail. Nice people along the trail! It was VERY wet from all the snow, but to be expected. I got a little lost at the part of the trial that went into the water and it took a few minutes to find out where it continued.

A nice moderate trail to hike. The loop cannot be completed due to partial closure of the trail but an out and back hike to the falls is a nice hike. Segments of the trail have rocks and roots but I met quite a few trail runners on it.

I walked the Red Route and enjoyed it. Lots if up and downs giving you a better workout the flat trails. I used walking poles and recommend using them

A beautiful hike with numerous changes of scenery. A great way to start a fall day.

nice hike except the part I couldn't take due to it being closed.

All Korstian and Blackwood sections of Duke Forest are closed Monday through Friday until 12/14/18 for deer herd reduction.:(

Beautiful hike over Thanksgiving. Think we combined the red and blue trails. Some hills. Good views of the lake.

Hiked the trail today but couldn't complete it because of the mud near the falls area. I had to turn around and go back because I didn't have waterproof shoes on today.

Great double loop trail near RTP, NC. Plenty of lake views. Beautiful trail. Do the blue loop for a quick hike or do the entire figure 8 if you want a real workout. Highly recommended.

Rated four stars for the views, it’s nice to walk along the river for so long. But it’s a very easy trail, definitely not moderate. Only a few climbs, everything else is flat, wide trails. I think I’ll do a little trail running next time.

Part of the trail is still closed from storm damage but the overlook is still open and offers a scenic view of the river.

although parts of the trail were completely flooded, my wife and I had a wonderful hike with our dog yesterday. Appreciate the silence

The trail is a nice, light exercise with some great views of the Eno. If you live nearby it's certainly worth an outing!
