Trail Improvements Planned at Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area

RALEIGH -- Construction to improve the Summit Trail at Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area in Durham County will begin Feb. 6, according to the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation.

The trail and all park facilities will remain open during the construction period and available to the public, but vehicles and construction equipment may be traveling on parts of the 0.6-mile trail in backcountry areas of the park. Other trails in the state natural area will be unaffected. The project is expected to be completed in approximately two weeks.

For further information on the project, contact officials at Eno River State Park at 919-383-1686.
