High scenic views and mountain trails await you at Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area. This Piedmont monadnock has been recognized as one of the most important natural areas in the Triangle. It is the highest point in Orange County at 867 feet, and the oak forest, pond, field, heath bluff, and river habitats found on the mountain support species that are rare and significant in this region. With 190 acres of land and nearly three miles of trails, visitors can experience a wide variety of the area's natural surroundings and wildlife.

lots of other people on the trail with very little trail etiquette (i know not the trails fault). lots of inclines and stairs as well. a good workout and well marked!

Limited parking and quite busy but great trail. Nice views and well laid trail.

Overall nice trail with a pretty overlook. Heavily trafficked on nice days. Watch out for broken glass on the trail, I had to pick up and carry my dog over a couple spots.

This is a nice trail system with a surprisingly great view over the town of hillsborough
Two fishing ponds at the bottom which are fun to fly fish for bass and bream.
