perfect place to hike, picnic, and play in the water

Plenty of parking, miles of trails to wonder, river is shallow enough to swim below the dam but not after a rainstorm!

Not 15 minutes from downtown Durham there is West Point on the Eno. The park has walking trails, a beautiful creek and a historic gristmill. There is plent of parking and is a good place for a picnic or group gathering.

Recently checked this place out and I've been back several times since in a short time. West Point on the Eno offers a variety of hiking trails of varying distances, some rivers and water holes, historic homes, a wide and gorgeous waterfall, etc. Dog friendly (leashed), there's plenty to keep you busy for a few hours. Each time I've gone... More

Went hiking with father, daughter, and dog (on leash). Great spot of some easy day hiking. Well kept trails and some opportunity to get off of the trails.

If you're looking for a place where it's close to nature, this is the place for you! We didn't have to pay anything for our engagement shoot in here. We had a great time in a great sunny afternoon and our photos look so genuine and beautiful because of this place!

I took a family here for portraits and it was perfect. There are old buildings, plenty of solid shade and water backdrops. Walking/ hiking is great too. I hate when people don't leash their pets and have no recall - so this is something I dislike about the setting, but overall it's a relaxing location with well minded people.

There are great photo opportunities every where. The homestead, the mill, the river and dam. It is a wonderful place to just wander or for the hikers.

Great place to get back to nature with family, visiting friends, or be alone. Nice place to get your feet wet or your entire body, to take pictures of people, bugs, and plants, to have a gathering at a picnic shelter or on the ground.

I wanted to see this place for the mill. With it being summer, photo opps were limited as the bushes had grown up so much. But it was still great to walk around and grab a few pictures. There is a damn nearby that allows a large wading area to exist. This place was filled with children looking like they... More
