Eno River State Park

Map of TRACK Trail at Eno River State Park

The Eno River State Park TRACK Trail follows the Eno Trace Trail, an easy 0.5 mile loop along the edge of Eno River.

 

The loop trail features scenic views of the Eno River and interpretive panels describing the trees found along the trail. Minutes from Durham, Hillsborough, and Chapel Hill the Eno River State Park offers secluded wilderness trails with the serenity of a clear river drifting and cascading over a rocky stream bed. The Eno River is a swift, shallow stream flowing from northwest Orange County into Durham County for 33 miles where it joins the Flat River to become the Neuse and flows into Falls Lake. Its waters roll through wilderness, passing historic mill sites, river bluffs covered with flowering shrubs, and fords used by early settlers. Eno River State Park lies in the beauty of more than 3900 acres of natural resources.
