Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Some call it “the Yellowstone of the East” because of the abundant and diverse wildlife, including bears, red wolves, and bobcats. Ah, a civil environment. And one that requires a minimum of hiking because everything pretty much comes to you. Pocosin Lakes is one of more than 540 wildlife refuges nationwide.

Located on the desolate Albemarle Peninsula, it includes 110,000 acres that the federal government began setting aside in 1993. The refuge is an overwintering spot for a variety of waterfowl, most notably the tundra swans and snow geese that come to feast on submerged wild celery and widgeon grass as well as corn and wheat in nearby fields."
