Spring Wildflowers

The Eno River Association invites you to enjoy the Eno this spring with our Spring Hike Series, a tradition since 1969.  Our spring hikes will showcase the wildflowers that bloom along the Eno, and some will visit a historical site or follow a scenic path along the river. The Eno River is home to a large variety of blooming flowers, including hepatica and trout lily in March, Dutchman’s breeches and yellow lady slipper in April, and rhododendron and mountain laurel in May.

Registration is open!

Register through Eventbrite

Hikes start at 2:00 pm and last 2 – 2 1/2 hours unless otherwise listed.  Arrive 10 minutes early to find your hike leader and sign your hike waiver (if you did not sign the online version prior to the hike).  Hike leaders will display a white or red Eno River bandana.

Hikes are geared towards adults, but children are welcome with an accompanying adult. Well-behaved dogs are permitted but they must be kept on leash at all times.

COVID-19 policies: Masks are not required at this time as long as participants maintain a distance of 6 feet from others outside of the group they arrived with.
