Relax and enjoy walking along a variety of trails observing nature in all its varieties - birds, plants, sights and sounds that beg you to walk a little farther. Have walked here in all four seasons and each one has its own delightful treats of things to see and hear. A wonderful walk that is also healthy.

This little walking trail, about a 5k is very scenic, a little hilly and has coffee creek running alongside. Great for individuals, walkers, runners children, and deer seem to find it nice. A very nice afternoon enjoyment for 20 minutes or a few quiet hours.

We love to run the trail and visit for walks. Unfortunately one of the companies is ruining the back half of the trails. Very scenic!

We were staying at the Hilton Garden Inn which is maybe a half mile from this park. Fun to run and see all of the flowers, wild birds, water features and small lake.

Beautiful 167-acre preserve, 4+ miles of trails, waterfalls, fountain and tons of great places to take pictures. Over 2 miles of hard surfaced trails for wheelchairs and easy for strollers. Great place for weddings, birding, nature watching.

Well maintained and marked trails. You can walk up on the tamest deer at any given moment. Safe and lit for night walking.

Coffee Creek Watershed Conservancy Preserve is a great place to visit and walk. There are plenty of trails for people and/or people and their dogs to walk. It is a beautiful setting near the heart of downtown Chesterton.

It's a good place to hike, but if it's rained recently the trail will be muddy in areas. Wear appropriate shoes! There are picnic areas. There's a large pond with a fountain.
