Local Âpark-n-huckÂ novelty spot when thereÂs LOTS of water around. This is probably the
steepest individual drop in the Triangle.
Directions: Going South (West) on 85 take exit 170. At the end of the ramp, turn right onto
Pleasant Green Rd. About Â½ mile down on the left is the Pleasant Green Access to the Eno R.
Put-in/Take-out: It enters the Eno R. about 75 yds above the Pleasant Green Dam. To run StoneÂs
Creek, you park at the Pleasant Green access parking lot (on Pleasant Green Rd.), and walk up the
trail next to the fence about 100 yds. Put-in below the small dam under the bridge (watch out for
the hydraulic), enjoy the next 3 minutes of fun, and take out on the Eno, on river right, before
you go over the dam. Repeat as desired.
I suggested the name ÂJoe Deppe FallsÂ for the main drop after a local paddler and State Park
Ranger. But I have been informed that it has been known as "420 Falls" due to other activities
which tend to occur nearby.
