“Swimming not recommended”

Eno River State Park
Ranked #11 of 80 things to do in Durham
Certificate of Excellence

Swimming is not recommended at the quarry. It is not listed as a sanctioned activity at the park. Water temps drop significantly and can cause even the best simmer to be in distress. Hike, fish and canoe or Kayak.

Good trails and peaceful. River gives a nice focal point and great place for pictures if photography is your hobby. Only issue is limited parking.

Without question, Eno River State Park is the nicest park in the triangle area. It's a popular spot for hiking, running, swimming, camping, etc. The Eno is a lovely small river, with a rocky course and occasional rapids/plunges. A nice trail systems runs both along the river's banks and in the surroundings forest. There are several different entrances; my favorite spot is the entrance near the intersection of Cole Mill Road and Pleasant Green Road. Hike down to Few's Ford, and then head upstream along the Buckquarter Creek trail. You can make it a loop but I really enjoy the out-and-back.

Great trails, interesting buildings (check the web to be sure they are open), and perfect for picnicking. Hotter than hell (but still a great site) in July and August, so take plenty of water!

Eno River State Park is a great little known treasure. Walking along the Eno is the perfect setting for a great day. There are miles and miles of trails and usually some sort of wildlife are seen deer, turtles, birds Ect.... If you are in the are this is a stop to make!
