  • I’ve done the Cole Mill Loop and the Pump Station Loop, both were great hikes. Easy and well maintained. Wildflowers I saw were spring beauties, ground ivy, rue anemone, buttercups, chickweeds, and...

  • Worth a visit just to cross the swinging bridge that leads to the Cox Mountain trail! Well maintained and friendly rangers at the info center. Clean bathrooms. Lovely vistas. Soothing sound of water.....  more

  • Tons of rocks everywhere tons of them to climb over. Along with the suspension bridge it is tons of fun to walk over. And it is one of the best hiking spots in the triangle with tons of little streams that flow into the river with tons of those cute footbridges to cross over the streams. There are even a few swimming holes. It is a great spot to exercise any puppy.
  • While it’s not the most awe inspiring park around, Eno River is nice. There’s plenty of parking and a spacious picnic area. The paths in the picnic area are paved which can help if a picnic is the only thing you’re here for. On the park itself, in the right light and weather, the river is beautiful. The sound of running water is rather calming. The hikes are easy to moderate and on the shorter side. The highlight for me was the suspension foot bridge. It’s not something found on a lot of hikes and it’s a unique experience.
