Eno River Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The rippling Eno River winds for 33 miles from its headwaters in Orange County to Falls Lake in Wake County. Two state parcels offer access. One, Eno River State Park, focuses on the river; the other, Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area, preserves an adjacent summit. Includes trail guides for: Western Eno River State Park; Eastern Eno River State Park; Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area.
The historic town of Hillsborough amply illustrates that. Hillsborough lies between Occoneechee State Natural Area and Eno River State Park and its aggressive development of riverside parks and the 2-mile Riverwalk greenway (part of the
Mountains-to- Sea Trail / MST) demonstrates the potential for preservation along this scenic stream. The MST is gradually linking adjacent state lands to many “trail towns” like Hillsborough where urban amenities, dining, lodging and history complement a hike across the state or just a weekend escape."
