This little nature preserve is relatively small, yet it provides a good hike for all levels. The preserve covers woods that span a small gorge (or holler). The visitor center has great information. Programs can be scheduled for school groups and home schools. It's also adjacent to the Mill Creek and the Greenway Trail and the Caldwell golf course.

Unfortunately the visitor centre was not open on the day we visited ut one could imagine how lovely it was. You can take a... More

The Caldwell Nature Preserve is a relatively small park. Fairly easy hiking paths through the woods. The Nature center has many Native American centered exhibits. A good school group or scouting group activity.
