Riverwalk Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Riverwalk is used not only by hikers but also by parents with strollers, joggers, and tourists who find their way to this quaint Piedmont community, as well as folks taking a break from their businesses located downtown. Speaking of that, hikers can easily access businesses located directly off the Riverwalk. A pleasant afternoon will find patrons eating lunch in the parks and then walking it off.

The hike starts at Gold Park, a fine little preserve with a mini network of trails as well as a dog park and play area for kids, then heads east along the Eno River, where it squeezes under a railroad trestle, crosses the river, and enters a 12-acre tract donated by Peggy Cates Bartow. An additional loop trail is located here in the streamside woods. Continuing on, walkers will view rock outcrops along the river and then cross the waterway yet again. Here they will reach downtown and accesses to businesses. Continue winding through wooded lands along the waterway, stopping to soak in ample historical information about the area."
