Caldwell Preserve Professional Review and Guide

"You’ll find beautiful views and well-kept trails at Caldwell Preserve. Although there is a fair amount of traffic, expect some solitude while you hike."

"Caldwell Preserve is a protected natural portion of Caldwell Park. The preserve is centered on three tributaries of Mill Creek and steep ridges that divide them. Primitive singletrack footpaths ramble throughout the densely wooded landscape.

The hike explores the highs and low of the preserve, first crossing Ravine Creek then exploring two ridges that offer partial views into the lands below. Finally, it dips to the floodplain along Mill Creek, where cottonwoods rise from the creek bottom. A final ascent returns you to the trailhead."

The trail through the old growth forest is really awe inspiring. Some very large, very old oaks and maples. There is some serious erosion near the end of the trail along the mill creek. Steps and railing are gone, but by climbing to the right along the bank, you can locate the trail on level ground.
