Auto Tour Narrative 

The Snakey Point Marsh Complex is one of the best public access sites on the refuge. Visitors can enjoy two miles of hiking trails, utilize the fishing pier and access the marsh for paddling or fishing from one central locale. Visit the refuge office for property maps.

Cane Ridge Wildlife Management Area is located in Gibson County approximately 10 miles west of Princeton, IN. Cane Ridge is a wetland restoration site built to provide nesting opportunities for the Federally endangered interior least tern as well as habitat for waterfowl and shorebirds to use during migration. Cane Ridge is managed as a sanctuary with most of the area closed to public access. However, wildlife observation and photography opportunities exist from the roadway and observation deck that provides a nice vantage point of the nesting islands and wetlands.
