Deer on biking path

Approximately seven miles of trail and beach are available for hiking and/or bicycling at the refuge. The Raptor, Sunset Point Overlook, Kuralt, Seaside and Dune boardwalk trails are all hiking only trails. These trails are narrow and do not allow enough space for both hikers and bikers to safely recreate. Please leave bikes at the provided bike racks or walk your bikes on these trails. The first mile of the Dike Trail system and Refuge Beach are available to both hikers and bikers year-round. The East and West Dike Trails are closed November 1 – March 31 to decrease disturbance to migratory and wintering waterfowl. From April 1 – October 31 one of these trails is open for visitor recreation.
