NOTE: 99% of this hike is on Public lands. The final 100ft crosses private property on a grassy access road where it hits Pleasant Green Road. It is YOUR decision to cross private property without permission. I take no responsibility for your anarchistic tendencies.
There is a 2.3 mile section of Eno River that is not connected by any established trails. At the north is the Eno Trace Trail, the short Nature Trail accessed at the very end of Cole Mill Road at the loop parking area – same place as if you were going to Cox Mountain Trail. At the south end is Pleasant Green Road where the Mountains-to-Sea Trail picks up on the south side of the river. In-between these trails is 99% Public lands but without trail.
