Eno River

Eno River Professional Review and Guide

"The Eno River begins northwest of Hillsborough and flows to the south. On the west side of Hillsborough, it turns east and passes across the northern part of Durham, where most of the river corridor is part of Eno River State Park. East of Durham, the Little River joins the Eno followed by the Flat River, where the Neuse River begins.

The backwater of Falls Lake extends up the Eno for a short distance. The Eno River is an outstanding example of a beautiful natural river corridor in a fast-developing urban area, saved from development by community activism. This eTrail contains 6 sections of the Eno River from US 70 bridge to Akzo Avenue (Durham Co. 2602) access."

Section 1 Update: Family/individual campsites are off the right bank (mi 5.1) in a right bend. The sites cannot be seen from the river. Before paddling, it is best to walk to the sites by going over the swinging bridge to Fanny's Ford Trail. Check the river to recognize where to stop. A fee is charged, and registration is required. Section 2 Update: A group camp (mi 0.4) is off the right bank, as above. Sections 3-5 Update: The minimum paddling flow is still 120 cfs at the USGS Eno River near Durham gauge, but this now corresponds to 2.3 feet instead of 2.2 feet.
