  • My favorite Auto route in the national wildlife refuge system. Any season. Especially during winter migration season.
  • Love the surrounding and wildlife. Did two trails about 2ish miles on a beautiful day out here.
  • Beautiful place. Although winter is the time to see the sandhill cranes and geese, there were still plenty of birds the day I visited, and very few people.
  • Great winter and spring water fowl birding. Lots of different areas to check out.
