PUBLIC NOTICE: Effective November 18, the Seven Islands Loop Trail will be closed until August 18, 2018 due to construction of an ADA Trail and Pedestrian Bridge at Seven Islands State Birding Park. We appreciate your patience as we work to make the Seven Islands more accessible to all visitors, while providing new ways to enjoy the park's unique features.


Over eight miles of scenic mowed trails wind around the refuge, up the ridges and down to the waterfront. Passing through native warm-season grass fields along the river and through wetland and wooded areas the trails highlight the parks diverse habitats and are ideal for wildlife observation. Stretching from the parking area to the French Broad River is the 1.2 mile paved greenway. The greenway is mostly flat and ideal for bird watching as it is sandwiched between open fields of wildflowers and farmland.
