You can also drive or bike the auto route, stopping at the many viewpoints along the way. Blackhorse Lake Hiking Trail is just one of the many trails on this scenic loop.

This hike is short and sweet. A bit overgrown for sure, but nice scenery.

Lovely and easy hike along the shore of a peaceful lake, as well as nearby grassland and stands of Ponderosa Pine. Late spring is perfect time to see lots of wildflowers and birds galore!

This is one of the many nature trails in Turnbull Wildlife Refuge. I spent the entire day hiking some of the lovely trails in these wetlands. This is a wonderful place to do some nature hiking, especially if you like water fowl.
