Directions from Durham, NC: From I-85 South to Durham, take Cole Mill exit, turn right, after 5 miles road will enter the park. From I-85 North, take Exit 170 between Hillsborough and Durham. Make a U-turn after coming off the exit ramp, go under the interstate a quarter mile, turn right on Pleasant Green Road, then turn left at intersection with Cole Mill Road. Once you cross the Eno River you will see parking on your left. Park there and walk across the road from the parking and picnic area. Pea Creek Trail begins there.

Did this one right after the longer one it shares a trailhead with. Goes under a (rather loud) overpass which is kind of cool but annoyed my dog.

In one area the trail was very thin and had a steep dropoff into the river, so may not be best for huge dogs or people with bad balance.

The trail follows a couple pretty bends in a relatively rocky section of the Eno River. There is also a small bluff that it cuts across as it provides access to the Dunnagan Trail. I combined these two trails, along with Cole Mill and Bobbitt Hole, for a nice six mile hike.
