Art Kelley’s beautifully detailed map of the Eno River trails is available for purchase through his website, artshikingmaps.info. The map is primarily relevant to Segment 10, but includes the Hillsborough Riverwalk and Historic Occoneechee Speedway areas within Segment 9.

This 60-mile segment of the MST allows travelers to explore an area central to North Carolina’s history leading up to and through the Revolutionary War and as a leader in the textile industry.
The western end of this segment is at Bryan Park at the end of a continuous 20-mile segment of the MST that follows Greensboro’s watershed lakes. The eastern end is the MST trailhead at Pleasant Green Road in Eno River State Park which leads eastbound hikers to 114 continuous miles of trail along the Eno and Neuse Rivers to Clayton.
We have created an alternate route in eastern Alamance and western Orange Counties that more closely approximates the planned future route; learn about that route here.
