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.
