Auto Tour

Auto Tour

A portion of the northern half of the Refuge is transected by dikes that separate management units and allow for a moderate amount of water control.  These dikes form an auto tour in this section of the refuge making it possible for visitors to view wildlife from their vehicles.  Some dikes are not open to vehicle traffic, but foot traffic is allowed.  Long Dike, the north-south section of the autotour, is seasonally closed to vehicles from about mid-May to mid-June to accommodate Canadian Geese and their newly hatched goslings which waddle all over the dike in this season.  Entry to the auto tour is at Bressman Cabin to the north of the headquarters office and Brown Dike access just south of the Gallagher State Fish Hatchery.
