Hike at the Eno Quarry

2 Miles Total - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Kelley Dodge

Short hike back to a deep quarry. 

Escape the NC heat at the quarry at Eno River State Park.

Access the Eno Quarry via Cabe Lands Access Point (parking lot off of Howe Street). Follow the Cabe Lands Trail (red blazes) from the parking lot. About 80 yards down the path you'll see a trail split off to the left which leads through the woods about 0.9 miles to the quarry. After you cross the Eno River, popular for fly fishing as most of the stream can be waded, you will reach the Quarry Loop Trail. The loop is about 1/2 mile long and runs around the perimeter of the quarry. 

Please note, for your safety swimming is strongly discouraged by park rangers and the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation.

Cox Mountain

Cox Mountain: Funny name, pleasant walk.

Amazing Scenery

The beauty of the piedmont region definitely reigns in this state park. I have enjoyed this place for years and their annual Eno River Festival has brought great cheer to my family for generations.

Amazing Trail Run

This is a beautiful hike or run. The return trip is when it gets extremely fun. Its uphill the entire way back. Pace yourself.
