The Eno River Association hosts its own series of Hikes and Outings to bring all the citizens of the Eno to the river to enjoy, explore, and learn more about the places we love. Most hikes and outings take place on Sunday afternoons from 2-4:30 and more details can be found by checking the calendar at enoriver.org for the most up to date information.

New Year’s Day Hike CANCELLED FOR 2022. A tradition since 1971 of the Eno River Association is our popular New Year’s Day Hike. We gather together as one Eno family and take either a short, family-friendly hike or a longer, more adventurous one at the Eno River State Park. Start the year off right and join us to celebrate another great year on the Eno. Click here to learn more about our New Year’s Day Hike.

Cancelled for 2022. Please consider joining us for our Superlative Eno Social Scavenger Hunt from December 26 through January 31, 2022. More here.

Winter Hike Series
January and February find us leading a hike every Sunday afternoon to explore a new area of the river. We see, hear, touch, and learn about the natural world as well as the history of the Eno River basin. Click here to learn more about our hikes in January and February.

Spring Hike Series
March, April and May continue our treks up and down the Eno River and some hikes will feature spring wildflowers, while others simply enjoy the beauty and history of the river. The last hike of the season takes place on Mother’s Day with a hike up Occoneechee Mountain. Click here to learn more about our hikes in March, April and May.

Updates and weather cancellations for the next hike will be posted at the top of this page. You can also email hikes@enoriver.org and we will respond as soon as possible.
