30-Acre Lake

30-Acre Lake Professional Review and Guide

"This is a fairly short, easy, and somewhat out-of-the-way hike on the Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge. Hiking this route offers excellent wildlife-viewing possibilities. Dogs are discouraged on the refuge; however, they are permitted as long as they are on a leash less than 5 feet long.

A daily or annual Refuge Pass is required Mar through Oct; no fee is charged Nov through Feb. The best time to take this hike is in the early morning in September, when the rutting elk will be bugling, their high-pitched voices challenging each other for dominance. Really, an early morning at any time of the year is a great time to take this hike"

"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."
