Established in 1966, Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge provides 7,800 acres of restored wetlands as a landing ground for waterfowl and other birds as they migrate through south-central Indiana. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has worked diligently at Muscatatuck to convert farmland to a mixed ecosystem of forest, aquatic, and grassland habitat. The proposed 3.9-mile hike encompasses five of the trails at Muscatatuck, an American Indian word meaning “land of winding water.” Spring and fall may be the best times to see the migratory waterfowl as they travel between South America and northern Canada.
