The Boy Scout Road Trail Interpretive Site has great options for hiking on the refuge. Take an easy stroll over a short looping boardwalk trail, or enjoy a five-mile roundtrip hike that travels from pine savannah habitat, past a marsh overlook and cheniers of oak trees to the edge of Bayou Lacombe. Watch for the endangered Red-cockaded Woodpecker along these trails in spring and summer.  Take a virtual Google Earth tour of the trail here

Lemieux Road Trailhead is accessed by turning onto Lemieux Rd from Hwy 190 between Lacombe and Mandeville. This site has a covered picnic area and short nature trails that wind through the forest to a marsh overlook.
