Eno River Quarry

The Eno river quarry is part of the Eno River state park and is worth the trip. The water is great and the jump off the ledge is scary in a good way.

Many trail entrances to the river and trails all around! Keep eye out for snakes and check yourself for ticks. Enjoy the deer.

went to 2 different locations. First went on a hike - it was nice. A lot of good scenery. Kept us entertained us for a few hours! Next day we went to a swimming hole. It was kind of crowded so we hiked upstream and chilled on a rock for a few hours. Nice and relaxing. Even saw some turtles... More

We visited on a Saturday afternoon at the end of May and found very few people on the trail. We entered the Fews Ford area and started the Buckquarter Creek/Holden Mill Trail. Staring at the visitor center, the ranger was helpful and suggested this trail. There was some elevation gain, but nothing to be afraid of. We did the two... More

Lots of different trails along the Eno River or through the trees. Keep your eyes open for birds and other wildlife. Look for trail maps online and explore its really lovely.

A little walk through the woods and you are at the river. Watch out for snakes and kayakers. The water level fluctuates and fishing is spotty. There were many families and co-eds enjoying the swimming holes. Relaxing, even when busy.

We love Eno River State Park. No matter where you head in - it meanders all along the Eno, with entrances for a variety of activities - you'll find an adventure. Hints of the mills and homesteads that were early Durham and Hillsborough. The river, with it's pools, for cooling off. And the friendliest and most helpful rangers ever.

We were there when the weather was perfect and were astounded by the flora and fauna. We saw at least 3 different species of skinks as well as frogs and a copperhead snake-magnificent!

We went there the other day. Nice trails. My son had a blast crossing the bridge and checking out the log cabin, Looking forward to going there again soon.
