The Refuge provides visitors with opportunities for wildlife observation, photography, hunting, fishing, environmental education and interpretation. There are 2 ½ miles of nature trails in the Refuge’s Wildlife Viewing Area. The trails meander through meadows and river bottom woodlands along the Bitterroot River. The Wildlife Viewing Area includes a half-mile wheelchair accessible path, which leads to the Bitterroot River. A county road (Wildfowl Lane) stretches through the Refuge providing scenic views of the surrounding landscape and abundant opportunities to view wildlife.
