You can enjoy Moosehorn's natural beauty in many ways!
Over 50 miles of dirt roads and trails are available for walking, biking, and skiing. These roads are a great way to observe wildlife. Three self-guided interpretive trails give insight into refuge wildlife and management.

Tours and Programs
Refuge staff offer programs at various times during the year, mostly during the summer. Annual events include the Children's Fishing Derby in June and National Wildlife Refuge Week in October. Please contact the refuge for current information.
Past summer programs have included guided refuge tours, nature walks, and Bart, the refuge's captive bald eagle. Several years ago, Bart was shot and had to have part of his left wing amputated. He cannot fly and is now cared for by a staff member at Moosehorn.

Fishing and Hunting
Several streams and lakes on both the Baring and Edmunds Divisions are open to fishing. A Maine fishing license is required, which can be purchased in Calais. Current regulations and maps of fishing areas are available at the headquarters. Certain areas are closed to fishing until after the waterfowl nesting season.
Small-mouth bass, yellow perch, brook trout, and chain pickerel are the most common fish.
Please contact the office for current locations and regulations.
Areas of the refuge are open to deer hunting during the Maine rifle and muzzle loader season only. Contact the office for more information.
