Wildlife Observation
Hiking is encouraged throughout the refuge, but trails are not maintained. The open terrain of the refuge provides ample cross-country hiking options. Game trails may be followed in many of the canyons. Please exercise caution when entering rocky and rugged terrain. Biking is an enjoyable way to see many parts of the refuge. Bicycles may only be used on roads open to motorized vehicles. Even the best roads are rough and rocky, so sturdy mountain bikes are a must. Horses may be ridden throughout the refuge. Overnight use is allowed at Post Meadows camping area where corrals are available, call ahead for availability. Stock water in the creek is about 100 yards away. Pelletized feed is required to avoid introducing weeds with hay. Access to this campground depends on the weather.
