Love coastal NC. But one thing I miss about the triangle is hiking through the woods near the Eno River. Does anyone know what's the closest park that has trails through woods, with some hills?

My dog has gained weight :-/

I did take her on the trails once at Poplar Grove Plantation, but there were a lot of unleashed dogs on the trails and my dog gets a little reactive when unleashed dogs run up to her and get in her face (so do I)

Thanks!

Cliffs of the Neuse State Park outside of Goldsboro has hills, but that may be a long haul if you live on/near the coast.

Thanks! I'm in Wilmington. We ended up just going to Halyburton Park, which was great - but I do want to check out others.

I do know that some people drive the 30 some miles
to waccamaw lake, many miles worth of trails there, no hills.

if you have access to four wheel drive you should drive to the fort fisher
state park and just walk along the beach, many miles there to walk and they allow leashed dogs year round.

i do have one other secret spot, cannot reveal.

the summer rest trail in mayfaire area is nice but only a mile,
if you were at halyburton,[ love that park and live close by], you can
walk the bike trail , it winds all the way from park to forest hills and beyond.

we do greenfield lake path [ 5 miles] all the time, again no hills.

let me know if you find any hilly areas, i miss them too.

I generally spend my summer in Durham, NC in order to lose weight. I walk around the Washington Duke golf course, which is hilly, about 3-miles long, and mostly shaded due to the large trees. I was wondering if you found something similar in Wilmington. Thank you for your reply.

Hugh McRae Park is also nice. It has trees but no hills.

I love that trail - Al Buehler Trail - I go there all the time.

I'm not sure of anything close, but, once I went to the trail at Poplar Grove Plantation and it seemed comparable. I didn't do the whole trail though because of the off leash dogs (I had my leashed dog with me and don't want to be near off leash dogs)
