“The longest trail at Missisquoi NWR, this route follows along the river, providing a great spot to see birds.”— Katie Leuenberger
The Jeep Trail begins at the far end of the Mac’s Bend parking lot, about a mile down the gravel road from the gate. The trail follows a narrow strip of floodplain forest along the west bank of the Missisquoi River. The first mile or so of trail is mowed several times a year, but beyond that point, the trail can be very wet and indistinct.
In a very dry year or in winter, it should be possible to run all the way out to Missisquoi Bay. In late summer, Ospreys, ducks, and shore birds, such as Yellowlegs, are typical. In February, the refuge usually offers one or more Owl Prowls, where Great Horned Owls can often be heard in this area.
