A network of roads from the site’s military days forms the basis for trails and a wildlife drive. Approximately 4 miles of gravel roads are reserved for foot traffic only. Snow shoes and cross-country skis are allowed on these roads during snow events. The refuge also offers a 2 mile loop serving as a one way auto tour route. Vehicles can serve as mobile blinds, allowing visitors closer views to habitat and wildlife. We ask that all drivers and passengers remain in their vehicles while on wildlife drive. Public use rotates among the trails to permit a variety of wildlife observations while minimizing stress on nesting, migrating wildlife and to facilitate land management.
