Even though part of the trail is beside Big Buffalo Creek, the name of the trail is Endor Iron Furnace Trail. The trail starts from the entrance of the small parking lot off Carbonton Rd. The trail from the back of the parking lot leads a short distance to the Kiwanis Park Loop trail.

Great trail system, love the peaceful stroll in nature. The river path was a bit wet due to recent rains, but overall beautiful trail system. Will definitely do it again.

trail was great. two cars in parking lot but didn’t see anyone. the recorded trail for this one is way off. just follow the trail markers wherever you want to go and you’re good.

Well marked and well maintained. We hiked 4.5 miles around the trails and were pleasantly surprised by the quality. Some decent elevations made for a nice moderate hike.

The trail is heavily wooded and mostly shaded with many trail options with varying degrees of difficulty. Watch your footing for loose rocks and tree roots. Trails are well marked and some have benches. There are two parking area (first is much larger than the second) with no bathroom facilities on location. Trails can be immediately accessed from parking areas. The area is expansive, making it easy to socially distance

Great trail! Our family really enjoyed this area. It was a little confusing as to where to begin but we figured it out. There are two parking lots. We followed the Canoe Trail (red) to the River Trail (blue) and made a loop back to the parking lot. It was a wide, well maintained trail most of the way, with exception to the part right along the river which was very narrow. There was only one bench (that was occupied) by the river. No restrooms. Almost 100% shaded. Will definitely come back again!

Nice trail, there is some washout near the river but it’s easy enough to navigate. The “loop” is generous in terminology. It’s a definite out and back. Nice trail.

The signage is a bit confusing, especially where trails overlap. But, I had a decent signal and could check the app. Steep to the water but worth it. I even saw 2 bald eagles!

We didn’t finish the entire trail because my daughter had to use the restroom, and unlike when we are in the woods, this trail is very open and public so back to the parking lot we went. The trail is LOUD, it’s not just by a road, it’s next to a main highway. The sounds from the semis driving by do not make for an enjoyable walk.

Good and semi relaxing but fairly close to the road, park, and residential areas. Not the best if you want to get away from it all. Great if you have kids or you have a physical impairment given the whole way is on a paved trail.

The loop shown in Red is inaccurate. In order to make the loop as pictured, you need to turn off the river trail on to white pines bluff trail well before you get to the confluence of the two rivers. The blue trail dead ends at a bench and does not continue on as shown. Google White Pines Nature Preserve for more details directly from the Triangle Land Conservancy, or see the map posted in the photos section.

started at Kiwanis family park and found the green belt to Endor trail. Started recording at Endor trail and finished doing the Kiwanis loop. Which was a good warm up that I didn't record. in total mileage was 6.87 miles.. Had to dodge a couple of walkers, mostly at kiwanis. The Kwanis loop is sand and gravel. the Belt line and Endor trail are paved.. Good mix of hills..

Great park. Sad to see many trails were overgrown though. Other than that, it was a beautiful park. Lots to explore.

I'm a caregiver for a family with children on the autism spectrum, and I took the youngest here this morning. we absolutely loved it! just be careful of some fallen trees, a little overgrowth, and tons of spider webs!

Got a little turned around at a few points due to over growth. So didn't follow precisely. But great park nonetheless.

This is an in and out, up and back trail. Endor iron furnace trail had parking at the Wicker St end and a gazebo at the other end but no parking. Easy trail cuts along Applebee's and the Shopping Center. Not crowded when I was here.

Very nice trail. Some city and some away from shopping centers. There is a creek toward the end of the trail and at the beginning, you will cross through some shopping center areas. It was clean and I saw 3 people on the trail. The only thing dirty was the build-up from a flood in the creek that held a bunch of trash. The trail kept count of miles every .2 miles. There is a gazebo near the end of the trail. I walked this trail after walking the trail at Kawana's Family Park. I used the bridge and walked to the beginning of the trail there. I didn't know there was parking at the trailhead.

This is a nice easy walking trail. It's close to the road and you can hear the cars, but nice enough to see some nature, as well. I got a few great shots on the hike. No dogs allowed on this trail so be aware if you are thinking of bringing your walking partner. There are other places to walk with a dog but not on this trail. When you get about .6 miles down, on the right there is a bridge. If you go to the left to the top of the hill, there is another 1.4 mile trail available up and back (1.4 each way).

I didn't find this trail to be a loop. Maybe it has changed since the hurricanes? I don't know. I walked in till I came to a 3-way fork which ended up being near the fork of the rivers which I knew was not like the app is showing. At the 3 way fork, the yellow trail marker (Schoolkids) only showed going back where I just came from and the other two forks showed different trails. I'm not sure if I messed up but I did stay on the yellow markers the entire time until that point and it just ended and that was it. I ended up crossing 2 trails, following my GPS to get out before dark.

I did this hike and got lost! I thought it was a loop at the end, but somehow I ended up working through 3 trails to get back to the truck before dark. It was wet but that's what we have everywhere. There are signs at each fork but they are showing an arrow pointing the same way where you could take 2 different trails. I was totally confused . I wished there was signage that says which way is back to the parking area. GPS doesn't work very well as there is no service/very little service down by the river.
