I love the Eno River!! It's a great place to swim and enjoy nature trails. I take my 2 dogs on the Eno hiking and we stop and swim during the day, I've also thrown a fishing line out every now and then for fun.

This is a great spot to take a hike of about any distance you prefer. It includes Cox Mountain trail to get some climbing in, or other trails that go right along the lovely Eno River for several miles. It provides a chance to see some wildlife, with turtles, a heron, a copperhead and a small herd of bolting deer... More

The park is so peaceful and so pretty. You will definitely get plenty of exercise on the trails. There are picnic tables right at the parking area so you can pack a lunch and keep in the car until you return from your hike. Cross the suspension bridge if you dare.

Great hiking for the triangle. Lots of trails to. Choose from. The ParKing and maps could improve on some trails.

This is a great state park and it is free to enter. There are several great hiking trails, the loop I did was about 5.5 miles and had a small amount of ascent and decent to it. We also saw several families with children swimming. I would recommend this place for a good weekend day if you want to be... More

It is a lake in the middle of the quarry. You can jump off a ledge there or just float around. FLOATY RECOMMENDED, if not there are many logs you could float on. Park rangers strict with alcohol but still able to get away with if you really want. Wonderful time relaxing

I had seen this state park on trip advisor, and we decided, last minute, to visit it on our way home from Durham! It was the highlight of our trip- just wish we would have taken water shoes! We walked with the kids and then let them wade in the water with their flip flops. There were so many people... More

Great natural resource. Dozens of trails. Perfect spot for exercise or relaxation. Follow "leave no trace" and we'll all continue to enjoy its beauty year around.

Visited the park for a short trek in May 2015 with a couple of friends. Found the park to be a nice walking and trekking destination. The trails are well defined , signages are located to guide the walkers and the best pet is the river crossing. It's an excellent place .
