The hike past 30-Acre Lake is a fairly short, easy, and somewhat remote hike that follows a dirt service road on the Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge. Hiking this route offers excellent wildlife-viewing possibilities, especially in the early morning. An early morning in September is the best time to make this hike. Bull elk may be bugling, their high-pitched, almost birdlike calls challenging each other for dominance. Coyotes may also be making themselves heard, and other wildlife is often seen. Even moose can occasionally be seen here. If you should spot a moose, watch from a distance and don’t challenge it in any way.
