This fun loop at the Fews Ford area of Eno River State Park takes you through lands high and low. Leave the main parking area and dip to a swinging bridge and the effervescent Eno River. Work up and over the regal forests of Cox Mountain before returning to the Eno River. Walk this history-filled and pretty river valley. Visit Fannys Ford and pass a backpacker campground before returning to the trailhead. Elevation changes range over 250 feet in this hilly part of the Triangle.
