“A great multi-use trail at Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge.”— Erica Ryder
On this trail, visitors have views the refuge's impoundment system and the sand dunes. The impoundment system is comprised of man-made water pools which are managed to provide habitat to migratory birds throughout the year. Waterfowls (ducks, geese and swans) use this area during their winter migration. Shorebirds and wading birds are the primary residents during the spring and fall.
