Pennys Bend Nature Preserve

Pennys Bend Nature Preserve Professional Review and Guide

"Explore an 85-acre parcel circled on three sides by the Eno River. Near the trailhead you pass the remains of Camerons New Mill. From there trace the Eno upstream bordered by riverside flats on one side and a rising rocky hill on the other.

Pass a pine savanna and wildflower areas, soaking in river views. Finally, cross the hill creating the river bend, visiting meadows before returning to the trailhead."
