Trails

Refuge trails and kiosks provide family-friendly wildlife viewing areas. The refuge has few hills, so all trails have very little elevation-gain, offering easy walks without losing any of the nature-experience opportunities. The southern New England floodplain forest, wetland communities and upland paint a wondrous scene for photographers, wildlife watchers and hikers. The Nashua River connects the northern and southern entrances of the Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge. Need help navigating? Print your own trail map before arriving on the refuge.
