Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge: Nature Trails Professional Review and Guide

"This 21,574-acre refuge offers some of the state’s best waterfowl viewing, thanks to a series of dikes that meander around three large lake-size pools. The refuge is a good place for a family outing.

The walks vary in length from a 0.5-mile loop walk to the featured hike, a 6-mile round-trip. The banks around the pools are popular for fishing. Local residents often bring folding chairs and ice chests and spend the day."
