30-Acre Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"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"
