Start your New Year off right! Hike the Eno! Win prizes! Stay safe!

Download your BING-ENO Card and go for a hike!

As concerns over gathering in crowds continue, the Eno River Association is cancelling the annual hike of the New Year for January 1, 2021. However, we still want you to kick the year off right — Eno Style! So, we’re encouraging you to hike the Eno from January 2nd through March 31st with our new BING-ENO game!

Let’s Play BING-ENO!

STEP 1 – Download Your BING-ENO card, which includes the BING-ENO game board plus a list of all the public trails along the Eno River.

STEP 2 – Plan to hike at least 4 times: using the board as a guide, that’s across, down, or diagonal to complete a row! Write in the square the date & trail you hiked at that access area. Use one square per day & area hiked. Areas are listed multiple times, so if you hike trails at that area multiple days, write them in on multiple squares for that area. Use FREE only if you give Park staff a break and avoid the crowds by not hiking the Eno on New Year’s Day.

STEP 3 – Challenge yourself with optional add-on efforts! Complete even more trails than the minimum — there are over 50 miles to hike! Bring a new friend with you on each hike! Or consider having your friends and family sponsor your hikes — $5 for every trail complete, or $1 per mile! Your donation will help the Eno River Association respond to the growing demand for safe, accessible outdoor spaces.

STEP 4 – Share the fun. Use the hashtag #BINGENO2021 and tag us on Facebook (@EnoRiverAssociation) or Instagram (@enoriver) or email your pics to

STEP 5 – Submit your completed BING-ENO card to claim your ENO TRAILS patch and be entered to win other prizes, while supplies last. Submit to OR Eno River Association Hikes, 4404 Guess Rd, Durham, NC 27712.


All participants submitting their completed BING-ENO cards by April 1st will receive an Eno Trails Patch, designed by Joe Liles, while supplies last.
