Eno River State Park Hike

We will first hike the 3.75 mile Cox Mountain Trail. The Cox Mtn. loop trail has a difficulty rating of moderately strenuous on the Eno River State Park Hiking Map due to a 250 feet elevation gain in about a quarter of a mile as the trail charges to Cox's plateau summit. If you want, bring your lunch or a snack, and we  can hike all or part of Buckquarter Creek and Holden Mill Trails, stopping for lunch along the river. These trails are all rated easy to moderate & will be in the 5 mile range.  Part of the Holden Mill trail requires crossing short rocky areas.  Check out the picture to the left to see an example.

Reference the following North Carolina State Parks website links for additional information about the Eno River State Park and trails: http://www.ncparks.go...

Note: This section of the Eno River State Park and trail head is located at the very end of Cole Mill Road.


***Once you are on Cole Mill Road proceed north & stay straight. Once you enter the park follow the road to end and park in the last parking lot. There are well-maintatined rest room facilities available. Be sure to pack snacks and or/lunch that you can take on the hike. Don't forget to bring plenty of water. We're planning to have lunch along the river during the hike.

    Great hike, day and group! The only thing that could have improved it was if I had been able to get in the river! It looked quite inviting. Thanks to everyone for coming.

    This was a terrific venue for a hike! I loved walking along the river, listening to the cool water (at least I imagined it as cool). Great people too!
