Wildlife Observation
The best way to delve into the refuge forest habitats is to follow the Craven Nature Trail to Dick's Pond. From a small pier on the pond, you might spot a beaver lodge, herons wading in the marshy areas, or ducks resting. Look for the trailhead along the entrance road about halfway to headquarters.

The refuge is open during daylight hours, with the exception of a campsite for anglers. Stop in the refuge headquarters office Monday through Friday, from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm to pick up leaflets and talk to staff.
