This past summer, Ashley and I had the chance to visit the Eno River State Park again, which is a fun hiking location right in central North Carolina. As most of our readers know we visit North Carolina every summer. The Eno River State Park is located in Durham and Orange counties, northwest of the city of Durham. The Cox Mountain Trail is located in the Western portion of the Eno River State Park. The Cox Mountain Trail is a loop and is 3.75 miles round trip. The hike can be lengthened by adding the Fanny's Ford Trail loop, which adds another mile to the distance.

Ashley and I have always enjoyed hiking in the Eno River State Park while on our summer visits to North Carolina. While hiking here this past summer we had the chance to see deer, turtles, frogs, and other wildlife. Additionally, we had the trails mostly to ourselves which was great. The hiking trails here are always well maintained and the suspension bridge is always a highlight of this hike. Enjoy the pictures from our most recent hike at the Eno River State Park during the summer of 2014.
