Eno River State Park reviews
We just drove through and it looked like a good place to walk. They have a water overflow area by a creek we saw but have not actually spent any time there.

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...

What an awesome spot! This was our first time coming to this park. It's about an hour drive for us, but it was worth it! The park itself is easy enough to get to. As for parking, there are very limited spots- especially on the weekends when we went. If you're going, make sure to plan ahead, get there early to get a parking spot, and to avoid the crowds. There are many trails located here. We decided on the Cox Mountain Trail. It has a decent length of about 4 miles round trip, views of the river, a suspension bridge, as well as an old cabin! The trail was easy to follow. There are plenty of signs pointing the way for you to go, as well as marks on the trees. Super easy going and you never have to wonder if you went the right way. The route was easy enough, as trails go. We stopped a few times so the kids could play in the water and search for Crayfish. We're definitely coming back here to check out the other trails. I hear the Quarry is cool!
With 5 entry points and almost 30 miles of trails this place has room for everyone. The water is shallow so canoeing and kayaking can be difficult. Check their calendar for events and activities. It's also great for camping and facilities are also reservable. Enjoy! 😊
