  • Absolutely gorgeous! Good for camping, day long adventures or short walks through the woods. Plenty of wildlife to see and rocks to skip.
  • Some of the best trails and forest excursions in the Triangle. My favorite hike in the fall and winter is the Cox Mountain Trail, meeting up with the Fanny's Ford Trail, for a good 30 minute or more trek up and down a mountain, through beautiful woods, alongside the Eno River, and back to the starting point. In the windy season of winter, a pine tree broke off and crashed down near me, a memorable experience. I see all kinds of wildlife on most hikes off-season. The Park Ranger's office has trail maps and other information available, and the rangers are first-rate hosts.
  • We did the Buckquarter Creek trail and the Eno Trace Trail (for the kidsinparks). We saw lots of turtles in the river and a dam made by a beaver. We also saw twin fawns on the trail. The park is beautiful and we hope to return soon and cover more trails.
  • Eno River Park is one of the best parks in the Durham area. Plenty of trails to walk along the river and out in the woods. Very dog friendly as well.
  • Awesome place to trek. Foot over bridge really exciting.
