Caldwell Fork Trail

The Caldwell Fork Trail is a moderate trail which follows a rushing stream. There are a number of foot bridges which keep you from getting your feet wet. The trail is heavily used by horse traffic, consequently it is mired in places. The trail travels through a beautiful old poplar forest which is particularly attractive during the fall when the leaves turn yellow. One of the largest trees along the route is 8 feet in diameter. This trail is recommended for winter hiking.
