Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge Trails Professional Review and Guide

"The Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1939 to manage the wildlife potential of the exhausted farmland. Walking these paths provides a window into the natural and human history of the region.

The area also features a visitor center, the Little Rock Wildlife Drive, and several ponds. An information kiosk provides basic details about the red-cockaded woodpecker and other wildlife on the refuge.

Another sign cautions about ticks, which can transmit Lyme disease and other ailments. Even in cooler weather it is wise to wear protective clothing, tuck pants into footwear, use a strong insect repellent, and check for ticks both during and after the hike."
