Join us for our REI #sponsored pop-up hike at the Eno River State Park on Saturday, July 14th at 9:00am. We know it’s going to be a hot one so we want to get started early. We’ve heard some great things about this park and are excited to explore it with y’all!
***This is a FREE event***
TRAIL DESCRIPTION: We are doing a combination of the Buckquarter Creek Trail + the Ridge Trail. Buckquarter trail is a loop trail that turns upriver at Few’s Ford. There are spectacular views of rapids on the river that can be viewed from a rock outcrop along the trail. A staircase will take us over the outcrop. Next, the Ridge Trail is part of the old Ridge Road to Roxboro. We will see remains of three 19th century homes along this route.
