I wanted to see this place for the mill. With it being summer, photo opps were limited as the bushes had grown up so much. But it was still great to walk around and grab a few pictures. There is a damn nearby that allows a large wading area to exist. This place was filled with children looking like they... More

Our family enjoys visiting this local park. Lots of picnic tables and green space for picnics and play. Easy, safe wading in the river as well. Great place for some downtime!

This is a interesting park. There are a lot of trails and it has a grist mill on the Eno River. There are overlooks and a small dam in the river. The only bad part is the grist mill is only open on weekends but they do have a blacksmith shop that is open. My only real complaint problem is... More

Since the West Point is such a convenient location for me I run there a lot. The main trails are great, but I wish some of the more remote trails were more maintained.

The gristmill is only open on weekends, but I saw nothing on the website about that. Lots of locals swimming in the river despite signs about snakes.

The Parks in Durham are exceptional. The city is to be commended for their efforts. WPOTE is one of those rare places you'll want to wander through to learn about the history of the South. Well preserved buildings. Check out the activities...

There is an old restored gristmill on the river open during certain times of the year. Walking trails along the river makes for a relaxing day. There are two shelters for gatherings, along with the old farm house you can visit. There`s a big 3 day event for 4th of July.

We have passed this park hundreds of times and finally visited with our rescued dog for a hike. We have been to better marked parks but fumbled our way through a beautiful 4 mile hike. We couldn't figure out how to get across to the 1.8 mile path that leads to Guess Rd but wandered up around the amphitheater parking... More

There are numerous trails to explore, an old working mill grinding flour, a fast flowing stream to kayak and picnic tables to enjoy lunch, even a photography barn and old, historic house.
