Mill Hill Extension

Length: 0.84 miles  |  Elevation Gain: 58.2 feet  |  

West-refuge trails include the long McFadden's Marsh trail, a prairie overlook boardwalk, and reservable blinds for observing and photographing birds and wildlife.

Part of the Mill Hill Loop Trail, this 2.5 mile round trip is open year-round. Trailhead may be accessed from the Display Pond or Headquarters parking areas. Follow the trail signs as you hike from either access point. This up-and-down trail takes you through many different forest types: oak, woodland, mature maple, and Douglas fir. Look for wood ducks or beavers on Gray Creek, or rest on one of the benches to watch for elk, deer and other wildlife around the forest margins.
