The refuge has two hiking trails which are solely open to hikers and are closed to hunting. The most popular and easiest hike is the Big Cypress Trail which goes to a giant bald cypress tree.
Three ATV trails are open to all users and are frequented by hunters and anglers. ATVs and UTVs may be used for hunting and fishing access only, must stay on designated roads and trails, and may not ride on flooded roads or trails on the refuge.
Blue Goose ATV Trail: 1.5 miles. ATVs are allowed on the first 3/4 mile of the trail. The remainder of this trail is wet year-round and skirts along a ditch. This trail is primarily used by hunters.
Wood Duck ATV Trail: This 2.5 mile-long trail is frequented by anglers and hunters. Two borrow pits adjacent to the trail provide great fishing for freshwater species (white perch, etc.). This is a popular hunting trail for squirrel and small game hunters.
Riverside Trail: 2.0 miles. This trail parallels the Mississippi River. ATVs are allowed on entire trail, but flooding can create accessibility issues. There is a bridge that limits ATV access approximately 3/4 mile down the trail. From that point forward access is by foot only.
