Visitors planning on hiking along refuge trails and roads should be prepared to deal with biting insects including black flies, mosquitos, and deer and moose flies. Insect repellant and/or a bug jacket are recommended in the spring and summer months. Depending on the length and location of your hike sunscreen, water, snacks, and a map and compass are recommended. Winter temperatures often drop below 0F. Visitors should dress appropriately during the winter months. Trail maps are available from the refuge office.
