Hike #7 of #52hikechallenge

Back to Eno River State Park to hit the trails I missed last week. What a difference 7 days and 20 degrees make, the park was packed. At least until we got to the trails furthest from the parking lot and then we had  place to ourselves.

We came across this 1800s cabin and a woman walking around it. She shared that her grandparents (Coles) lived in the home and she visits before it completely collapses.

It’s getting closer….

The construction was very cool, originally it looks like it was a log cabin (look at those joints – are they simple dovetails?) that was sided later. There is no trace the cabin ever had electricity.

Not far up the trail is another cabin. We asked a park ranger and he said it was for a spinster sister.
