BACKCOUNTRY WITH RANGER DAVE – MORGAN HILL

Friday, February 26, 2021 Back Country with Ranger Dave at Eno River State Park, Fews Ford Access 2:00 pm-5:00pm        

Go off trail with retired ranger Dave Cook to explore western Cox Mountain and Morgan Hill, the highest point in Eno River State Park. Along the way we will visit the largest Daffodil patch on the state park and if we are timing it right see it in bloom. No official trails reach this western area of Fews Ford Access so we will hike on old roads, power lines, and through open forest. This 5.5 mile hike includes some steep steady uphill and down hill climbs and walking the forest up Redding Creek. 10 person limit and masks will be required where we cannot properly distance. $3 for Association members and children, $5 for everyone else.

Directions: Meet at the Fews Ford Picnic Area at the dead end of Cole Mill Road. The address is 6101 Cole Mill Rd, Durham, NC 27705
