You and your dog will love exploring it, but only if you visit during the spring. Summer is just too hot. Fall is hunting season and winter is breeding season. Ticks can be a problem come May. Rattlesnakes rarely venture out in the cold and they’re quite elusive the rest of the year. Nevertheless, don’t let Rover go sniffing around in the basaltic talus slopes. Most importantly, the refuge was established for protecting wildlife; therefore, you and ol’ Scratch should be on your best behavior.
