Murphy Peterson Wildlife Drive
Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge has an incredible Wildlife Drive where black bear, wild turkeys, all kinds of birds of prey, waterfowl, and other wildlife may be seen. Locals drive around after supper and compare notes about how many bears they have seen in different fields, sharing information with out-of-towners they meet. There's even a chance to see an elusive red wolf! There are a series of roads totalling approximately 15 miles, plus many additional roads are open to vehicles and provide access to thousands of acres of wildlands. We offer guided tram tours weekly during the summer and monthly throughout the rest of the year. But, you'll also have a great time exploring the Wildlife Drive on your own.
