Narrow trail along east bluff overlooking North Pool. Needs some TLC: will need to be re-cleared and/or marked in the near future. It is discernible and follow-able for now. Good trail for birding during spring or fall migration.

A super easy walking trail with three boardwalks overlooking the massive Chautauqua Wetland. The path is rocked and wheel-chair accessible.

This trail is fantastic for morel hunting in the Spring. The small section of forest is full of large dominant Black Oak trees because of the sandy soils.

Beautiful new bluff top trail on Chautauqua National Wildlife Refuge. It's close to the road, but you'd never know it. Great glimpses of the wetland from the bluff top.
