This is an interesting driving tour of the Moccasin Pond driving loop and Rail Road with an experienced naturalist as a driver and guide. This tour requires a little more than an hour, and passes several freshwater marsh areas of the Refuge. Visitors are likely to see alligators, turtles and several bird species including moorhens, coots, grebes, egrets, herons, Blue-winged Teal. You also may see Bitterns (American and sometimes Least), Purple Gallinules, snakes and some mammals (raccoons, bobcats, and deer). This tour is a good introduction to the part of the refuge that is open to the public.
Bring binoculars for a closer view. If you don't have your own binoculars, we will have simple binoculars available for your use.
|The 3-mile Moccasin Pond Loop Drive is open to the public every day from sunrise to sunset. Viewing platforms, interpretive signs, and vehicle parking areas are available at several locations. For further information about exploring on your own, click here.|
