With four walking trails, three water trails and an auto tour route (Wildlife Drive), the refuge is renowned for its wildlife observation and photography opportunities. The Wildlife Drive offers excellent views of local wildlife, including waterfowl, shorebirds, turtles, bald eagles, ospreys, and the Delmarva fox squirrel. An Observation Platform can be accessed by turning left at the first fork on the Wildlife Drive. Equipped with spotting scopes which offer a 360° view of the surrounding marsh, this is a prime spot from which to view eagles as they hunt and feed nearby.
ALERT: As of 1/4/2024, the Marsh Edge Trail has been closed to limit disturbance to nesting eagles.
