A 3/4-mile nature trail is located on Morris Island and winds through a variety of coastal habitats. Overlooks on the trail provide views of the refuge's North and South Monomoy Islands. Along the trail, one may come into view of least terns, common terns, willets, piping plovers, and the occasional snowy egret. These birds all summer on the refuge and can be seen near the shore, or in the salt marsh. The refuge also hosts an annual summer photo contest.
