Cox Mountain Trail is a challenging uphill climb at the popular Few’s Ford access area of Eno River State Park. The trail begins at the Eno River, passing over a swaying suspension bridge. You’ll leave the crowds behind as you hike up Cox Mountain Trail. The trail levels out and becomes a relaxing stroll through open mixed deciduous/pine forests before an easy descent to a western section of the river. Take the long way back around Cox Mountain to head back toward the trailhead.
