I am so happy it is finally starting to warm up! I can't wait to spend some time outside.

Where do you guys like to go? What outdoors things do you like to do? Are there any good trails in the area? I'm from the western part of the state and I love hiking, but it's a pretty long drive just to get back to the mountains to go on a day hike. I'd love to learn about some of the good hiking spots in the area.

I'm also just looking for general outdoorsy things to do -- parks to visit, festivals, scenic or historic areas to walk around in. I live in downtown Durham and love walking around Watts/Hillandale, Brightleaf, etc. I've also visited Hillsborough, which i absolutely loved seeing all those old buildings -- are there any other towns like that nearby?

I'd love any suggestions about things to do where I can take advantage of the quickly approaching spring weather! Thanks!

My favorite hiking spot is the Eno River. Either location on Cole Mill road are nice.

I've been to West Point on the Eno, and I really liked it. It was a bit crowded, but still a really nice place. I'll definitely be checking out the other Eno spots!

I'll also be checking out Pittsboro! I love cute little towns, just wandering around and looking at stuff. It sounds excellent.

Thanks y'all!
