Caldwell Fork Trail

Caldwell Fork Trail is a moderate trail which follows a rushing mountain river.

There are several foot bridges along Caldwell Fork Trail which will keep you from getting your feet wet. The trail is a very popular area for horse traffic, so it is very muddy in places. You will travel through a beautiful old poplar forest which is especially beautiful during the fall season when the leaves turn yellow, red, gold, and orange. One of the largest trees along the route is 8 feet in diameter.  You will also see American beech, red maple, and white oak trees.

The Trail is 6.3 miles.
