Homer Campbell Boardwalk Trail

Length: 0.36 miles  |  Elevation Gain: 13.0 feet  |  

Mid-refuge trails traverse marsh habitats with numerous bird-viewing opportunities, including the ADA-accessible Homer Campbell Boardwalk.

Open Year-Round. Trailhead is at the parking area east of the historical Fiechter House. This accessible boardwalk winds through the Muddy Creek riparian area that is seasonally flooded with winter rains. Oregon ash and big-leaf maple are the common tree species, providing canopy for many songbirds. Thrushes, bushtits and juncos are commonly heard. The trail ends at an observation blind overlooking Cabell Marsh. A seasonal extension (Open Apr 1 to Oct 31) offers access to Cabell Marsh and the Refuge interior.
