Great loop! My dog loved the Eno river running along the trail so she could jump in when she got too hot. The signs and blazes make it easy to follow. Wonderful spot!

Very nice, easy trail. Pretty forest and river, I'm sure I'll be back again.

Great hike with the kids. There are plenty of places where the kids can get wet and enjoy the water.

Beautiful walk along the Eno river. Good hills. Nice hike.

It’s a great place for a nature walk. In between you can take a swim at the quarry. The only bad thing is no public restrooms or information center. Parking is limited so get there early. I had a great time and enjoyed the scenery.

A recent relocation and upgrade has helped turn this good trail into a great one. Gone are the super-steep climbs and descent from the peak of Cox mountain, replaced now with more gradual and less worn new trail. My guess is the relo has added about .3 miles to the original, but it is all great trail.
Highly recommended!

Nice trail. Turtles on logs in river. Mileage does not include fanny ford extension shown on red trail map.
Easy to leave off with short connector trail. Quite a bit up and down. Rough terrain. Suggest older hiker like me (73) use sticks and good hiking boots.

Very pretty easy hike! Particularly loved the portion by the river. It follows a beautiful section of the Eno river with pretty rocks here and there.

Great Views by the river. A detour so it’s a little different then the map.

Fun hike with a river and a lake

Fun hike

Nice hike up and down a bigger hill. Little walk along the river on the other side and back.

Great hike, lots of time by the river. Moderate traffic.

Pleasant, easy trail. Not busy at all on a weekday morning. About half is walking along water which is very nice. Saw a big heron and turtle during our journey. Great low key hike.

Great year round hiking spot, can be a little too busy during peak hours in the warmer months.

I enjoyed it very much. It inclines, declines, woods, trees, the Eno River, maybe other bodies of running water, ice, snow, sun, shade, a bridge or two, and more.

Loved this hike. Good spot halfway for my dog to swim in the river. Very few people in January once you leave the entrance/exit areas.

Great!

Really well kept trail. Started off wanting to do cox mountain but went counterclockwise and missed the turn off for the rest of the trail ...just follow the signs!!! Was a nice short trail with a really neat bridge. I may take my kids next time. Would recommend

Nice moderate hike with plenty of river time for the dogs.

Fun trail, decent elevation change. Terrain was moderate and trail running in the fall makes it very easy to stumble on tree roots or rocks. Be careful! I ended up at 3.3mi but I think I missed the 1.5mi loop on the back. I went counter clockwise and when I came to an intersection got confused and went back to the trail head. Either way, awesome state park.

This was a beautiful hike along the river. It was more difficult than I had thought (some climbing over rocks.) There is a long uphill climb, but it wasn't too strenuous.

Nice views and what not; however the Bobbit Hole didn't look as tempting to swim in as I had hoped.

Great trail. Most of it use to be a road back in the 1800's. Can't wait to do or again.
