Biking is a good way to see wildlife, learn about habitats and photograph nature. At Turnbull NWR, biking is allowed on both the paved and unpaved roads. Always yield to pedestrians. Riding off-road and on trails is prohibited. E-bikes are permitted on any refuge roads where traditional bicycle use is allowed, if it is consistent with a refuge’s statutory purpose and the refuge manager determines it to be a compatible use. Extra caution is advised when riding on refuge roads since most are unpaved. Mountain or hybrid bikes are recommended. Please pack spare parts and wear all appropriate safety equipment, including a helmet and high-visibility clothing.
