“The eastern section of the Laurel Bluffs Trail, leadring from the Pump Station to Guess Road.”— Justin Paul
From the Pump Station, Laurel Bluffs Trail follows the Eno River downstream. There are a surprising number of hills along the trail, heading up to bluffs high above the river, then down to cross rocky draws where small tributaries flow into the river.
Along the way, the trail passes several points of interest including Fish Dam Island, Gebel Rock, Panther Cliffs, and the ruins of Guess Mill Dam. The steep south-facing bluffs allow mountain flora to grow here, such as mountain laurel and rhododendron.
