Fiddler’s Creek Preserve
This 121-acre complement to the larger Baldpate Preserve offers broad views of the Baldpate Mountain Ridge, stunning views down into the Fiddler’s Creek ravine, idyllic walking along the creek at the bottom of the ravine, and links to the industrial past of the Hopewell Valley a century and more old. The terrain falls in three categories: (1) scrub woods and open areas along the western side of the property; (2) a central 40-acre area of open fields (undergoing reforestation) extending northeast from those scrub woods to Fiddler’s Creek Road; and (3) the Fiddler’s Creek Ravine on the east side of the preserve, running from Fiddler’s Creek Road roughly south towards the Delaware River. The open field area is surrounded by a fence to protect young trees from deer, and is crossed by four trail segments, with gates at five points to let walkers through
