San Joaquin River NWR Wildlife Viewing

At the San Joaquin River NWR visitors can explore the Pelican Nature Trail that is 4 miles long, and the Beckwith wildlife viewing area off Beckwith Road.

The Pelican Nature Trail meanders through seasonal wetlands, restored riparian woodlands, and stands of old-growth valley oak trees. The trailhead includes an educational seven-acre native vegetation free-roam exploration area.

The Beckwith observation platform is open seasonally mid-October through mid-March, and overlooks Refuge agricultural fields and grasslands that provide forage for thousands upon thousands of Aleutian cackling geese and lesser Sandhill cranes.
