Kiwa Trail Loop
Wildlife is the star attraction of this nearly level hike. Birds in particular seem to be everywhere—standing in the marshes, flitting in the trees, floating on the lakes, swimming in the sloughs, and hunting among the meadow grasses.

Join leaders Robin Carpenter and Gabriel Forcier for a walk around the Kiwa Trail at Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. The 1.5 mile flat, crushed gravel trail passes through an understory of Oregon ash trees and between open wetland areas. Dress for the weather, hats recommended. Beginners welcome.
