The Eno River State Park is just a few miles from Sarah and I’s house and is our favorite local place to hike. This particular trail is one of our favorites in the park. At 3 miles, its a perfect distance, spending half of its time along the river, and the other half along a ridge. The trail is well maintained, though on this particular day the bugs and spider webs were worse than usual, probably just due to the time of year. This is a particularly beautiful area of the river. Also, be sure to stop and take a look at the Dunnagan family grave plots along the northern part of the loop.
