Description

This trail keeps you on your toes, as you navigate paved, gravel, and singletrack sections. Keep an eye several paces ahead of you for kids on bikes, and families with small children, and nature lovers. It is best to hike it during the week, and early morning hours on weekends to avoid some of the crowds.

Flora & Fauna

Plenty of trees, cover, and small bushes along the Eno River.
