We went after 6, and there were a TON of lightning bugs along the trail!! We took the puppy and he loved it too, except the suspension bridge! Wear good shoes - lots of rocks and roots that can easily trip you up. Great scenery, but definitely a "moderate" trail!

All of the parks along the Eno River are the kind of public spaces that every city wishes they had. The land and the river are incredibly beautiful, all year long. Parking is ample and free. The Eno parks are as safe as anything outdoors can be. Truly, one of Durham's greatest treasures.

Rock Quarry is very cool place to cool off during summer months. You need to hike about .8 or 1.5 miles depending on which parking/access point you use. Be sure to bring floating devices with you since the lake is 70 foot deep and hardly any place to stand up in water.

What an amazing State Park! 1st state park we've visited in NC since our big move from Maine. Soo many well blazed trails to access and the website has such easy directions for camping, parking, trails and etc. PERFECT spot for your dog to swim, we even went on a Saturday at 1pm and it wasn't crowded! It was so beautiful!Can't wait to come back and try all of the trails!! Also we saw a rat snake...so best day ever

The river was outstanding! Very swift moving and noisy, my family loved the sound of the rushing water in places.
The suspension bridge was equally awesome. It was a lot bigger than I thought and worth the trip!
Trails along river are very well marked and cleared. We did see a couple of water snakes but this time of year that is to be expected.
We did wade out into river and the current is very swift. My eldest daughter and I got across with our shorts getting a little wet. Wouldn't recommend this if you aren't sure footed. Ricks on river bed are slippery and covered with moss. One wrong step can have dangerous outcome.
We will definitely return to check out other trails
