Great trail, few inclined loved the view. An amazing cut out log in Memory of at the end curve. Great water view w small rapids :)

First time on this trail .. working here from out of state had a day off . Loved the trail. Very well marked, and lovely scenery with all the fall colours

Really enjoyed this trail and the walk along the river

Very nice stroll with great views

This trail is well worthy of its intermediate rating, as it has some pretty grueling switchbacks. lots of uneven terrain and loose material. and some slightly treacherous downslopes.

But you do get some nice vistas, the power lines kinda take away some, but still nice.

Bits of advice: Take Your Time! Also either carry a camel back or bring a gallon of water, because you WILL need it. Dehydration is no joke, it's early symptoms are subtle, but it gets bad quick, headache is a clear sign that you are not drinking enough. take lots of breaks and drink plenty of water. When you get back to your vehicle it's a good idea to have a Gatorade or Powerade, you need to replenish those lost electrolytes.

nice trail. we hiked it. it was more of a walk in the woods next to a river than a hike, but it was a morning well spent. I would rate it as easy instead of moderate. this would be a GREAT trail for running. I would run on it every day if I lived near by.

We drove 2:30 hrs just to hike here! And we had a great time. Our Lab had so much fun with the water and the hike:) a little damage from Hurricane but we can’t complain about it, we were just grateful the trails are still available.

Great for a quick hike with the

Nice trail! 5 miles with the Fanny Ford extension - which is a must for the beautiful water views!

lots of steps and lots of rocks uncomfortable for walking

Nice trail, but the bridge is out between the Buckquarter Creek Trail and the Holden's Mill Trail. I uploaded a photo from today, 9/22/2018

Good workout trail! It’s well maintained and it was moderately trafficked by people (and dogs on a leash) Go early (park opens at 7:00am) the parking lot will fill after 9:00am...

one of my favorite triangle trails. great little rock scrambles too.

It’s was very fun and pretty easy, Nice for an afternoon hike... went with some children who enjoyed it a lot as well

Did this trail in combonation with holden mill, today on recommendation of a very nice lady at the office? Followed her directions to do a figure 8, starting with the right branch of buckquater then crossing over to stay with the river on our left, then coming back with the river on our right. Went with a friend and our 3 dogs. We all had a blast, we were in and out of the river to play. A bit more traffic as the day went on but not bad until we got back to the beginning of the trailhead where everyone was in the river. We will definitely be back.

It's an easy trail. Nice little loop walking by the river.

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.
