Creek Crossing Repair at Eno River State Park
Saturday, October 20 | 9 a.m. – Noon
Meet at the Piper-Cox House Parking Lot | Eno River State Park, 6101 Cole Mill Rd, Durham, NC 27705
Dave Cook will be leading a group of volunteers to move, and properly position, rocks at the Ridge Trail crossing of Buckquarter Creek which have since been relocated due to high waters from the recent hurricanes. These stones are important to move back because they are placed to allow hikers a dry foot crossing and promote good creek flow.
This activity does take a lot of physical activity and strength. The hike to the site is on hilly terrain and is 1.1 miles long. When moving the rocks, we will be wading and sticking our hands down in water that can go up to 2 feet deep, so place wear proper attire and bring water; we will provide the tools.
If you can help, please email email@example.com or call (919)620-9099 ext 204.
