This is the day we plan to open Red Sleep Mountain Drive for the summer season (weather and road conditions permitting, of course). This scenic road provides excellent opportunities to see a variety of wildlife along with numerous blooming wildflowers.

Start Red Sleep by 6:00 p.m.

The front gate will open at 6:30 a.m. and the Refuge closes to all public use at dark (see gate for posted times). Morning and evening provide the best wildlife viewing. For visitors coming for an evening visit, you will need to start Red Sleep Mountain Drive no later than 6 p.m. to finish the loop before the main gate closes at dark. Fees are charged for the scenic drive and are payable at the Visitor Center.
