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.

This combined untouched, and residential area features some of the country's greatest variety of birds. The Watershed Conservancy works hard to preserve 3 miles of lovely hiking paths, a beautiful natural amphitheater on a lovely fountained pond. There is a meadow large enough for kite flying, and even hot air balloons. Several time a year, the management holds free concerts... More

I usually have a camera with me and have countless photos of the deer and each season's flowers. If you love birds it will not disappoint especially during seasonal migration. The Coffee Creek redwinged blackbirds... More

Most trails have some hilly areas. There is a frog pond and the Coffee Creek River runs through it where you can see steelhead... More

Coffee Creek Watershed is a great resource for people living in or visiting the Chesterton, Indiana area. The trails run behind homes but you would never know the houses were there because the preserve quickly takes you into nature. Birds and deer are everywhere. A very accessible place for someone just walking (or even in a wheelchair) and also a... More
