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

I recently had an opportunity to hike at the Eno River State Park. While being used to much more challenging trails, this was a nice area to explore & visit!

My boyfriend and I went here around Christmas for a short trail run. It was easy to get to and very quiet and peaceful. Its a nice place for a short nature walk. Hard to get lost. A little reservoir to walk around and quaint, little stream.

This is our absolute favorite park in the Durham area. There are trails for everyone and every level. The park has a picnic area and the river is great for wading in. One drawback is that weekends, especially when the weather is nice, it tends to be packed with people. If you're able, to during the week when it's nice.... More

Eno River Park it's a very nice forest to visit for a couple of hours or to spend a whole day and even the night (camping it's allow upon registration). If you have the luxury to visit in a windy day then you'll want to stay as longer as possible. The sound of the trees moved by the wind it's... More
