Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge Hike Carty Unit

Hike Distance: 3.3 miles

Elevation Gain: 261 feet

Since May 1st the Wildlife Refuge has opened regions that are closed all winter long, for waterfowl nesting, etc…  I was hoping to hike this previously closed region in the Carty Unit but found the trail was flooded with no bypass available.  In fact, I found many of the trails flooded and inaccessible.

That said, I was the only car in the parking lot and the only person on the trail. 🙂  It rained the entire hike but I was prepared and really enjoyed the mood and solitude.
