“Revolution and Textiles: Bryan Park to Eno River State Park”— Jim Grode
Along Hillsborough's Riverwalk/MST (EB Miles 49.2 to 50.5; WB Miles 7.2 to 8.7), the trail is blazed with white circles on metal sign posts. Follow the trail notes closely since the blazes extend along an unfinished section of the trail.
Between the Speedway and US 70 (EB Miles 52.1 to 53.1; WB Miles 4.5 to 5.5), the trail is blazed with 3-inch white circles painted on trees.
The road portions of this segment are not signed or blazed.
For more information, including camping, lodging, parking, shuttles, and resupply information, as well as detailed, turn-by-turn directions, download a trail guide from the Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail.
This MST segment is experiencing rapid changes as local governments and state parks acquire land for the future trail route. Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail volunteer crews welcome your help to build and maintain the trail. Please contact Friends to get involved.
