Had no idea this place existed until we booked a hotel in Seney... What an amazing place! Would love to check out the trails next time, but we did the 7 mile auto tour this time... Was free and an incredible family nature experience. Would be so beautiful in the height of summer although the new fall colors were great too.

If you haven't gone yet, make time for a stop to the visitor's center and the drive through the refuge. We saw an osprey on its nest, a parent loon feeding its young and an osprey chasing a bald eagle. AMAZING!

The story behind this preserve is interesting in itself -- the remnants of the logging industry turned failed farmland turned CCC project of the 1930's. It was a beautiful drive through a series of ponds that serve as the home of swans, geese, loons, ducks, eagles, beavers and deer. We saw them all during the late-afternoon drive. This was well worth the drive to see the refuge.

Seney has 95,000 acres and is a wonderful place to visit if you enjoy birds and animals in their natural habitat. We had a grand morning with Jim, a volunteer, who took us on a drive thru the refuge and pointed out many birds and animals and was a wealth of information.

This nature preserve is well worth the visit. It is home to all manner of critters including bears, wolves, fox, and a large variety of birds- some of which use the preserve as a stopping ground on their migration route. The volunteers that run the information station are knowledgeable about the park and the area and will help you pick a good route depending on your interests. There are well marked, easy to follow trails located near the information station as well as a 7 mile drive - through- with plenty of observation stations along the way.
