Eno, North Carolina Map

Moderate trail with extended river section. Fanny’s Ford loop adds an easy section to extend the trail.

Beautiful trail, enjoyable for people young and old.

pleasant, no gravel, birding, easy for barefeet

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.

I would rate this as moderate, not easy. lots of steep areas, rocks, and roots galore. very windy and cold today. will come back when warmer.

Fun hike with a river and a lake

Great for running or dog walking, trail goes through an old cemetery and dairy farm with many old out buildings still on site. Very clear trail with lots of variation!

very good trail. not too rough but good for cardio.

Well-maintained trail with great signage and a lot of loops to add distance if you want. It is heavily used by mountain bikers so be prepared to share the trail.

Great hike starting from the Eno River State Park Pleasant Green parking area, take the Laurel Bluffs Trail under the road's overpass all the way to Eno Quarry. Make sure you start from the gravel parking road and don't start from the wooden steps near the landing. Lots of older students go to the quarry to swim and hang out, but this is an old rock quarry with very deep water and some steep mud cliffs that can be dangerous. The trail is nicer than the Cabelands to Eno Quarry route. Some nice areas for a picnic and the quarry has fish in it. Worth a visit.

The Laurel Bluffs Trail extends along the Eno River from the Pleasant Green access, past Cabelands, opposite Cole Mill, past Pump Station, all the way to Guess Road. A couple sections provide more solitude than many of the other park trails. This section is not necessarily one of them, due to its proximity to Eno Quarry. I hiked in from the Cabelands trailhead, and continued on Laurel Bluffs to nearly the half way point between the quarry and Pleasant Green before turning back. This part of the trail was more woods than river. Though I did find it a nice way to end up a long day of hiking at the state park.
