“A lovely place for a festival.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is a pleasant place for a picnic or frolic in the park, especially when there is an art and crafts festival. Some old mill buildings are open for a visit.

“10 minute drive and you are in the woods walking by running water”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

There are multiple entrances to walk different portions of the Eno River State Park. Trails are clean and well kept and depending on when and where you go you might not see another soul. This park is one of Durham's best kept secrets. There's nothing like walking on the trail on a hot summer's day and seeing or hearing a turtle that was sunning itself on a rock or log sliding into the river. And there are locations where you too can get in to splash around, fish or kayak or canoe.

“A great spot for a hike!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Eno River is a nice place for a nature hike. Its a short drive from Durham and Raleigh. North Carolina has far nicer state parks but none so close to RTP.

“Kid friendly”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Park has several trails. The kid friendly aspect is that there are several buildings to "discover" in the woods and a swaying bridge. Free.
