An old favorite after a week of rain. Rivers and creeks full. Trails in overall good shape.

Great hike anytime of the year.

Started just after eight on Sunday morning, so parking lot was nearly empty. There's traffic sound on the south side of the the Occoneechee Mountain trail due to proximity to I-85, but that diminishes further along the trail. Highlight of the trail is the stretch along the Eno river. There's a moderate climb after the river to get the blood pumping. Parking lot was quite full at 10:30 am, so getting started early was a plus.

Yes, the bridge that crosses Nancy Rhodes Creek is technically out, but don't let this stop you from crossing this small creek by rock hopping. I just hiked this loop 3 days ago. There is a very easy place to cross just down stream (closer to the Eno River) from the dilapidated bridge. Once you cross over you can then explore the really cool, old pump station, and just past that, if you follow the main trail down stream there are some pretty rocky bluffs with a nice view--and from this point you can continue further down the Laurel bluffs trail if you want to add some distance to the loop before turning around and passing by the old pump station area again. Go do the whole loop!

Worderful hike with a short drive from home. Hiked the longer outer loop but snuck over to the look out. Very pretty with a steepled church peeking out of the fall colors.

Great trail. One of the best in the area. Short, but nice.

FYI no longer a loop trail. One of the bridges on the part of the trail close to the river was wiped out by flooding after Florence. Still, decent out and back trail to see the pump station. Good for a short walk with my pup.

Nice quiet trail. Great escape from it all, will go back

Great place for a peaceful walk. Nice wooded and paved trails. Nice ppl and a great dog walking spot.

Great little circuit. The views are surprisingly good for The triangle area.

Nice, easy trail and that is very accessible and will look nice in the fall. Great for kids!

A great moderate trail. Ups and downs make the trail better but then just an easy walk. A nice overlook helps the ambiance. Take the dog and take kids over 8.

My husband and I hike this trail almost every weekend. It gets more populated after 9 am, but it still quite enjoyable. We typically bring our dog and see many other dogs on the trail. Great hike, especially for how close it is to Hillsborough!

Great location with many trails for all.

Pretty flat and not too many roots at the beginning. The elevation and tougher ground starts around the loop and it was a fun length! Good start to a day

Great trail for everything from hiking, running, and family walks. 2 mile paved loop, with a nice dirt trail close to the lake.

I do this trail so often. it is my favorite loop in the Triangle.

heavily trafficked and difficult to maneuver around pedestrians. Pro is that there is a lot of dogs. Khan is that everything smells like pee LOL

Good walk in the woods, some of the trail has water nearby which makes for a nice background noise.

My husband and I really enjoyed this trail and would do again when we come back to visit our friends who live a very short distance form the park. We went on a weekday around 7:30am shortly after the Crabtree entrance to the park opens which is 7am all other entrances open at 8am. Parking was free and easy. Was well shaded which kept the temperature down and the creek that you walk along side where the trail loops was great and not really any bugs attacking you although we did bug spray ourselves well prior to which is pretty good considering it was late July. Nice, even well maintained trail much more so than the CA trails that we're familiar with. Had quite a few roots and some rocks but we weren't bothered by this as we were wearing hiking shoes/boots but this trail is definitely doable in sneakers just a matter of personal preference and comfort level. I wouldn't personally consider this trail moderate it was a nice, relaxing hike but still kept your heart rate up with some changes in incline here and there and of course the humidity which was to be expected. Just FYI, there was not any drinkable water available at the time of our hike on 07/26 to refill our water bottles halfway through the hike as the nearest water fountain was out of service and the sink located outside the restroom nearby is non-potable water which it clearly indicates on the side of the water pipe so plan to bring plenty of water with you. We had not brought our Camelbaks like we normally would have as we were visiting from out of state and were attempting to keep the packing on the lighter side but will do so next time, lesson learned. But overall a great new hiking experience.
