Trails lead to the water. Not very well marked but an easy hike with beautiful views of the river and mill.

I walked through here and enjoyed the scenery. I miss the previous look, but the trails are nice and challenging for people and dog walkers. You will see dogs and owners in the water playing and having fun. There are poop bags available and all dogs should remain on a leash. There is a map available to see in the parking lot and port a potties to use. The mill is open to see. There is water all around to swim in. Picnic tables and much more to enjoy and see.
Fantastic park with great wide trails by the river to walk through. Large rocks in the river you can sit on. Some people were swimming and there was a small fall. There's a neat swinging bridge. Very nice park!!
Great park. Able to paddle around if you want! Nice, marked trails. Busy in summer, but Oct-March you may have a trail to yourself. Nice escape just minutes from downtown Durham.
25 min hike to the swimming hole. Park in the 2nd lot. And head towards the mill. Path on the left brings you to the dam. Trail is on the left. Follow till it comes to a valley and a bench you are 1/3 of the way. Keep going it eventually turns to the the left at a little Vista with another bench trail bends to the left you are 2/3s there. Follow trail and it decends to the stream and comes to a narrow stream bed. You cross the stream and are 2 min from the swimming hole. Follow the path and you come to a beautiful swimming hole. There are snakes. Be on the lookout, we have seen three but they didn't pose a problem. Also path opens and there's a lot of rocks approaching the water. Careful they are slippery. However, once in the water is beautiful and refreshing and when you get to the inlet it has a sandy bottom. Some people fish here and we found a hook once so water shoes or sandles are a must. Fantastic spot though.
Always enjoy visiting this park. Went on a weekday so it wasn't crowded at all. Some of the trail markers need to be refreshed but it was easy enough to follow.
