You are welcome to enjoy the many open paved and gravel roads within the refuge as they are great for wildlife watching and hiking. An old railroad right-of-way is today a 9-mile nature trail. In addition to the Wildlife Observation Trail, several shorter trails are available for your enjoyment. These include the Visitor Center Trail, Cemetery Trail, Magazine Trail, and the Starr Ranch Trail. The refuge’s roads provide a lot of options for visitors interested in everything from a quick hike to a long day of watching wildlife.
Come prepared! Mosquitoes and deer flies can be abundant so insect repellent is recommended. Be on the look-out for poison ivy.
