WE had a great time walking the paths of the park. There is a lovely stream and small waterfalls. It was raining lightly and it was still a great time

This is a great place to picnic and hike. My son and fiance have canoed several times down the Eno from the park. Your basic nature walk with beautiful scenery. Go there on a regular basis

If you enjoy nature and walking in the woods, the Eno is as good a place you will find in the Triangle area. In Raleigh Umstead Park is comparable and in Orange county the NC Botanical Gardens are nice but not as large or wild as the Eno.

Eno River Park on Cole Mill access is small but has picnic areas and hiking trails. You can view the river as you take a walk or run on the trials.

I went last week and hiked the Cox Mountain, Fanny Ford, Holden Mill and Buckquarter Creek trails. These are located at Fews Ford Access point. Today I went back to the Fews Ford... More
