Even when the weather turns Texas hot, this 0.4 mile interpretive loop offers maximal views for minimal sweat. Hiking the gentle incline on a wide, shady, grassy path, expect to spend some extra time reading a series of informational panels identifying and indigenous plants, birds and animals. The hike culminates at a 16-foot observation tower that provides a 360-degree panorama of the entire 11,320-acre refuge and Lake Texoma. Look for several varieties of geese (snow, Canada, Ross’ and white fronted), or white pelicans which flock here by the thousands during their spring and fall migrations.

Attention birders: Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge is a busy from the spring to the fall. Birds use it as both a pit stop and wintering ground. Make sure you pack your binoculars and field guide.
