Nicely maintained trail that leads out to the water. Amazing water views with a little beach area to explore. There’s even a bench out on the point to sit and take in the gorgeous scenery.

The views of the bay from this trail are spectacular! Really nice trail that’s well maintained. Not long at all but great!

Nice short loop trail through the woods. Nothing to write home about. Nice walk for the dog.

Very nice trail out to a point and back. At the point there’s amazing water views and even a small beach! The trail is very well maintained and wide enough for a car but vehicles aren’t permitted on the trail. Great hike with the dog.

Really nice boardwalk trail over the wetlands. Trail leads to a overlook platform and blind area. Nice brief walk in a gorgeous setting.

I wouldn’t not recommend it, but we went on one of the hottest days of the year and there were plenty of mosquitoes out. Be sure to take bug spray!

I've been here many times. It's great in the fall, winter and early spring. But avoid in summer and spring due to the amount of bugs and ticks. It's a great place to take pups swimming though!

First I just want to say this natural wildlife refuge is gorgeous (inside the car). The guy working the store was very knowledgeable and friendly. Nice little trail behind the visitor center. This is where it went downhill. We took this trail and within 5 minutes we had to lightly jog back to the car. Constantly being bit by some type of flys, pulling off ticks, and having mosquitos all over us. I am from Georgia and am used to the bugs but this was unbearable. In all we had 7 ticks that we pulled off of us when we got in the car. I HIGHLY recommend you wear top of the line insect repellent, with jeans and long sleeves. To be honest I don’t know if that will help but it’s worth a try. P.S. stay away from this place during spring time, must be the reason they were so bad. You’ve been warned.

Nothing more than a short walk in the woods. It was buggy today. I should have worn pants and long sleeves.

This unimproved trail begins in a piney woods and then moves into meadow and marsh. It ends on the bank of the Chester River. It was buggy today. I should have worn pants and long sleeves.
