This is a fun and popular hike, sometimes almost too busy. Avoid this trek on Saturdays if possible. Start at Eno River State Park’s Cabelands area and take the Cabelands Trail down toward the Eno to pick up the Eno Quarry Trail. Here you will cross historic Indian Fish Dam Road en route to Eno Quarry, a 4-acre tarn, popular with anglers and swimmers in season. Cross Rhodes Creek then circle around Eno Quarry. Next, head back to the Cabelands Trail where you travel along the Eno River, visiting historic Cabe Mill. The final part of the route leads back to the trailhead.
