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.

It was a beautiful hike. There was a variety of trees, plants, and flowers. We settled at a secluded spot on the river and went fishing. We caught mainly sunfish but a few other species not native to the area which made it more fun. Don't go alone because there are reports of bums that might see you as an... More

My home is one of the fortunate few that is on the banks of the Eno, backed by forest preserve. I am forever grateful for the trails, the fews and preservation of this land..try and get off on some of the lesser known trails and you will find solitude and peace on the outskirts of Durham.

Lots of trees, plenty of wildlife, very rustic setting. There were a lot of mosquitoes that day we were there so we did not stay very long. Walking trail along the water was nice.

The Eno is a beautiful park with lots of options for hikers. Durham is rightly proud of this beautiful, natural spot. Do be careful about what you leave in your car though, as their parking lot is notorious for car thieves.

Take a hike here--the trails are easy to follow, there's a beautiful river, small lakes and trails that offer different levels and distances. Fun for the whole family.

The Eno River State Park encompasses many acres around the Durham area. There are a number of different entrances to parts of the park all over town. The Eno Association is constantly looking to acquire land along the river so to keep the natural habitat in tact. There is hiking, canoeing, fishing, and at West Point on the Eno there... More

This is a pleasant park in northern Durham. We have visited many times over the past 12 plus years. As noted in my previous review, there are many repairs that need to be made. The bridge by the old mill needs the steps, near the riverside, and hand rail repaired. Timbers on the bridge near the weir should be replaced.... More
