At Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, hiking in nature is a recreational activity offered at the Refuge. It gives visitors a chance to unplug from the stresses of daily life and reconnect with the natural surroundings. Some of the best areas to enjoy the Refuge can be found on Refuge trails. Whether you want a short, easy walk or a challenging hike, you’re likely to find what you want. Some trails are paved and universally accessible. Some trails include displays on visual arts, local history, and culture, or environmental education. All of our trails have trail access information posted at the trailheads.
