The Kepple Peninsula Interpretive Trail is one of the nature trails in Turnbull Wildlife Refuge in Eastern Washington. This is a paved trail that passes through wetlands, along a lake. You are likely to see many diverse water birds, and with a little luck, even a moose. There is a self-guided nature trail guide that you can pick up at the visitor's center. This trail is forked in the middle, and branches into two divergent trails that each end on two main roads. This trail is best hiked as an out and back trail.

I first hiked this trail in November of last year. To my surprise, I was fortunate enough to see a moose grazing in the distance. To my dismay, my camera battery was dead. This is one of the better trails in the refuge. It is flat, and easy to follow. This would be a very family-friendly hike. There are nice views of the marshes and lake, and lots and lots of birds!

There is a small parking area at the trailhead, and a restroom.
