Nothing like a hike on one of the many trails

It doesn't matter what trail you take, they all have their uniqueness about them. Either hiking along the river itself or on the ridges above, you will feel like you are alone with nature. Great flora and sometimes fauna will come your way. Best spot for wildflowers, spring through fall. The one problem you might encounter is the decision of... More

No matter the season, there are always places to explore along the Eno--trails, river crossings, bridges, mill ruins, flora and fauna... The rock quarry is a favorite summer swimming hole, and the trails are well-marked and well-maintained. ERSP is truly a gem of the Triangle.

Eno River State Park is a lovely place. Located very conveniently to Durham, Eno River State Parks offers nice un-manicured trails through the woodlands and by the River. These uncrowded trails (at least uncrowded on a Feb weekend with 70F degree weather) were a haven for families of hikers, dog walkers and joggers. We are using it for rehabbing my... More

Easy to find from downtown Durham. This Saturday was beautiful, low 60s and sunny, the trails were in great shape and not too difficult. Scenery was beautiful and lots of trail options looping back to the parking area.

There's 28 miles (or thereabouts) of trails that wind all along the land around the Eno River. Great way to spend anywhere from 1-4 hours.

Take a walk and renew your connection to nature. This place is beautiful. Tall trees, trails to hike on and the sound of a river. Well worth the visit.

Lush and inviting state park. Plenty of different trails predominantly easy, walking along the river and through mainly wooded areas. Definitely a popular destination, even with a surprisingly large number of people on the trails - it was still a calming and relaxing experience. Plenty of benches along the trail to rest and historic areas have self-guided (by phone) tours/information... More
