Starting at West Point on the Eno, this trail starts at the bottom of the hill from the parking lot just past the bridge to the right of the picnic area. Note the trail is not well marked and some additional signage would help, but the trail has a white blaze until you make the short water crossing and take an immediate left where it becomes a red blaze to Sennett Hole. I was hoping for a longer hike and passed Sennett Hole - apparently not a bad fishing spot with bass and lots of bluegill. I started up the hill from the hole and found out it goes to a nearby neighborhood. On the way back I went to the end of the point along the sewer line, then backtracked to the same point I first made the water crossing and took a left on the South River Trail. All of the trails on this side of the Eno are short. Nothing to write home about.
