The map is wrong. It names the Feeder Road as Judge Road and what they have marked as the Feeder Road is a ditch. Some of the trails indicated are not trails at all. They are dikes around the marshes some of which are closed to walking to protect nesting areas. People should visit the refuge's official website to accurate information
