West Point on the Eno is a truly great place to relax, picnic, and hike and some folks fish. There is an old water wheel attached to the mill and a bridge that allows you to cross over the water at that part. Lovely serene...More

Last year we went to the Festival on the Eno and had a great time with the music and seeing the crafts. It's a terrific place when the crowds are away, great for leisurely hiking by the river.

This is a wonderfully “centered” festival, sponsored by an Eno River support group, to maintain the river in environmentally good condition. The best part is the large number of bands, that play all day on 3 stages. A lot of liberal, environmentally conscious booths and...More

A great place to spend a day wading in the river, having a picnic, and/or hiking through the woods. We even saw turtles sunning themselves on logs in the river (away from all of the people, of course). The hiking was very nice and easy,...More

I like the hiking at other parts of the eno better, but this is where the kids summer camps happen (schoolhouse of wonder). Those are a must for kids 7-12 yrs old.

Yes! Of course it's always best to stay aware of your surroundings, the Eno is a relatively safe place to hike.
