Pump Station Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"At the Pump Station access to Eno River State Park, you can explore the ruins of Durham’s first pump station, then take a long walk along the banks of the Eno River.

Along this rugged trail you’ll see the remains of some of the earliest structures in Durham, including a dam, lodge, and Guess Mill. A varied geography makes this an interesting hike— you’ll ascend cliffs over the river and pass through flat, shady meadows."

"This circuit hike travels hills down to flats along the Eno River, where it then explores what is considered the best wildflower area at Eno River State Park.

From there, come alongside the river to find remains of an old pump station that served the city of Durham, providing water a century back. Explore these ruins then rise back to uplands along Nancy Rhodes Creek, with more wildflowers in season. The final part of the hike returns through hilly pine woods."
