Enjoy a hike on one of the several trails at Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge. Several short hiking trails and 3 accessible trails are available in the Visitor Use Area. Accessible Trails include Pine Lake Loop Trail, Kepple Peninsula Interpretive Trail and W. Blackhorse Lake Boardwalk. Less than ¼ mile, the Boardwalk Trail is our shortest accessible trail. It offers a smooth boardwalk surface, interpretation panels and ends overlooking the beautiful Blackhorse Lake. The 1.25-mile Pine Lake Loop Trail, with its compacted gravel surface, allows individuals greater mobility in getting out to Pine Lake and enjoying the variety of waterfowl and other wildlife that can be seen near or on the lake. Stationary binoculars purchased by the Friends of Turnbull, have been installed at the head of the trail overlooking Winslow Pool on the entrance road. Restroom facilities, with running water, and an interpretive kiosk is also located in this area. For those seeking a longer hike, a 5.6-mile gravel loop trail allows non-motorized access to Stubblefield Lake, a hot spot for spring migrants. The 2-mile Bluebird Trail, near the entrance to the auto tour route, provides an enjoyable hike through Turnbull’s habitats. The 0.5-mile Kepple Lake Peninsula Trail has a packed gravel surface from the parking lot out to the point of the peninsula. Interpretive guides are available at the trail’s entrance. Environmental education shelters are located at Headquarters, East and West Blackhorse Lake, and Kepple Peninsula Interpretive Trails. Paved parking facilities and vault toilets are also available at these areas. An accessible wildlife observation blind is available on the refuge’s Kepple Peninsula Interpretive Trail thanks to the efforts of several volunteer groups. Please remember that all visitors are required to stay on designated trails and roads March 1 through August 15 to reduce disturbance to wildlife and habitats.
