The Little River Regional Park & Natural Area features over 7 miles of hiking trails and 8 miles of single-track mountain biking trails. There are also 2 picnic shelters with grills, public restrooms, a group camping area, a horseshoe pit and a playground.
The Little River is one of the cleanest in the state, with vibrant aquatic habitat for otter, beaver, rare freshwater mussels and many other species. Sycamores, river birches and other riparian trees edge it’s banks. From their branches, indigenous and migratory birds, among them tanagers, warblers, whippoorwills and woodpeckers nest, feed fly and sing.
Little River Regional Park & Natural Area is a cooperative project between Durham and Orange Counties, funded equally by both, with assistance from the Eno River Association, Triangle Land Conservancy, NC Clean Water Management Trust Fund, NC Parks and Recreation Trust Fund, and the Land and Water Conservation Fund. The park is managed by Orange County.
