We wrap up our month of hikes on the 60-mile stretch of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail with a 3.9-mile hike from Red Mill Road to Penny's Bend. This stretch includes a hike along a bluff overlooking the Eno River, passage over an old railroad trestle (that one day may be part of a rail-trail linking downtown Durham with Person County), and some otherwise scenic hiking along the way. A good way to wrap up our month on the trail. Learn more about this hike here.
Hike rating: Easy (flat, one short climb)
Estimated hiking time: 1.5-2 hours
NOTE: This hike ends with a short (100 yards or so) passage along busy Old Oxford Road (see photo). The shoulder is adequate, but the bridge over the Eno is narrow; use extreme caution when crossing.
