If you want to get away from crowds and need solitude - this is your place. A Wildlife refuge a bit off the beaten path. Stop at one info boards at the entrances to get a map & brochure. We were there 2 hours and saw only 1 other car. It did feel a bit like we were in the... More

We went around the Blackbird Auto Tour Route twice and we stopped for brief hikes and saw Bald Eagles, swans, dragonflies and early Fall color in the trees. We spent over 4 hours here.
