Pee Dee National Wildlife Refuge Professional Review and Guide
"Exploring the Pee Dee National Wildlife Refuge is like going on safari. The trails and roads within the park reveal more wildlife than perhaps any other hike listed in this book. Not only are there deer, turkeys, foxes, and coyotes that roam the open farmland and dense forest at the refuge, but the lakes and wetland areas are home to a wide variety of migrating waterfowl. This hike explores the forest, fields, and wetlands on the property. The route starts by exploring Brown Creek Nature Trail, which winds beside the peaceful water of Brown Creek and through an open field of tall prairie grass. Next the hike travels to the nearby wetland area, where an extensive network of wooden boardwalks takes you out onto the water to look for birds. At the end of the boardwalk, the hike travels the Tall Pines Nature Trail through the forest. Then it loops back to the trailhead on a paved road that explores the outlying wetlands boundary. After the hike is finished, you will most likely want to spend some time driving through the refuge in search of additional wildlife sightings."
