There are no roads or communities within the Refuge boundaries, and most of the habitats within it are essentially pristine, making Kanuti unique. Visitation is low due to the remote location, allowing for outstanding opportunities for those who do choose to visit to experience solitude. It's a place where visitors can find a remote wilderness experience with few, if any, visible signs of human manipulation or a permanent human presence.
