Fall is a great time of year to hike with dogs in Eno River State Park. The leaves of hardwood trees are turning Thanksgiving colors, and while surrounding game lands allow hunting, it is prohibited in this state park, so you can hike the woods worry free with your dogs, although they must be on a leash at all times. The park, a 3900-acre natural area northwest of Durham, surrounds 14 miles of the 33-mile Eno River as it flows through woods and wilderness and past historic home and mill sites, eventually running with the Little and Flat Rivers to form the Neuse. The park offers camping, picnicking, canoeing, fishing, and 24 miles of hiking trails.
