Runner Notes

This is a good, even trail.

Description

From the parking lot, follow the signs that direct you down under the bridge. The trail passes through open field, then soon enters the forest. Building slowly uphill, you eventually rise above the river and carve your way along the bluff. After a short while, the forest changes from mixed hardwoods to cultivated pine trees. After the pines, you drop back down toward the river where you meet up with Eno Quarry Trail.
