Laurel Bluffs Trail
We will hike the Laurel Bluffs & Pump Station Trails, at a moderate pace over hilly ups and downs with tree roots and rocky stretches of trail. The distance will be about 5.3 miles round trip on an up and back trail (including backtracking). This hike may take 2.5 - 3.0 hours. We should see fast flowing water over rocky stretches of this stream as we hike along side the Eno River. We will plan on having a lunch/snack break somewhere along the banks of the Eno either after or during our hike, so plan to bring a lunch/snack along in your backpack. Directions: From Interstate 85 in Durham, head north on Cole Mill Road to Rivermont Rd. and turn right onto this road. After a short stretch of paved road, the road will become gravel. Go down the first hill and park just past the bridge.
Note: For those wanting more than the originally posted mileage, there are options to add miles to this hike.
