“This pretty trail visits the ruins of the old Durham Pump Station.”— Russell Hobart
Family Friendly Kids will enjoy viewing the old pumphouse along this trail.
The trail continues through a lovely section to the left where it passes large loblolly pines as it stays above the creek. From here, you'll get a bird's-eye view on the old pumphouse and the switchback down toward the river where you pass the Valley Springs Road Access Trail and Laurel Bluffs Trail (East) on the right.
Stay left going upstream on the Eno River to pass more remnants of the old pumphouse that once brought water to Durham. Head up along the river until you hit Laurel Bluff Trail (Central) where you turn left. Go uphill a short while and you'll reconnect with the beginning of the trail.
