Eno River State Park Hike - Cabe Lands Section

We will hike on a relatively new section of the MST starting from the Cabe Lands Eno River Access. This section is 2.2 miles, and we will hike it out and back. Upon return we will then optionally hike over to the quarry ( approx. 1 mile) for a lunch/snack break.  Again optionally, after that, we can hike another new section of the MST from the quarry to the boat access at Pleasant Green Rd.  This section would be around 3 miles total for the out and back.  My best guess is that the total mileage if you do all the sections would be around 8 miles.

Directions to starting point:

From I-85 exit 173 (west of Durham), take Cole Mill Rd. north about 3 miles and turn left onto Sparger Rd.. Continue on Sparger almost to the I- 85 overpass (about 1.5 miles) and turn right onto Howe St.. Go about one-half mile down Howe St. and turn into the Cabe Land Access State Park parking area on the right.

Be sure to pack a lunch/snack that you can take on the hike. Don't forget to bring plenty of water. We're planning to have lunch/snack at the quarry during the hike.

    Not sure how long it would take me to get there. Is there a GPS address for the meeting spot so I can Mapquest it?

      No real address, but if you enter the intersection of Sparger Rd and Howe St, in Durham, it will get you to your last turn. The parking is just down HowevRt on the right.
