Occoneechee river trail is hazardous   

The trail along the river at Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area is quite hazardous, with mud and debris. We do not recommend hiking this trail.

Occoneechee now open   

Although we have opened our gates, the following cautions apply: The riverside trails have been underwater for days. The water is receding, but these trails are exceedingly muddy, with lots of debris. We do not reccomend hiking on these trails. The trails that do not run beside the river will be in much better condition. Please be careful while in the park!

Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area

Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area offers a quick escape into nature with its three miles of trail exploring riverside forests, bluffs reaching to the highest point in the area and mountain laurel and rhododendron thickets. Visitors can fish in a pair of quiet ponds for bass and panfish or in the Eno River, either from the bank or by wading its shallows. Picnic grounds supply a grassy lawn and large, shading oaks. Rangers lead regular interpretive programs about the state natural area and its piedmont monodnock that supports species that are rare and significant in the region.
