West Point on the Eno: Nature Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Along this trail you can explore the historic park and buildings that occupy the original homestead and mill-operation area. The park’s landscape features rolling hills in the preserved lands to the north of the river. The trail is easy and only traverses a small hill at the end of the route. It begins near the historic Mangum House and explores the Packhouse and Hugh Mangum Museum of Photography, as well as the historic West Point Mill. The trail crosses the Eno River and meanders through the forest before curving back around to the south, crossing the Eno again, and leading to the western area of the park. Here the trail passes a historic barn before returning to the parking lot and trailhead."

"This adventure explores human and natural history along the Eno River. The Laurel Cliff Trail leaves a collection of impressive historic wooden structures to climb a bluff above the Eno River and meet the Buffalo Trail.

From there you drop to the deep Sennett Hole then traverse rock- and evergreen-laced bluffs overlooking the waterway. From there you pass an old milldam then come to iconic West Point on the Eno Mill."
