This very easy hike is plentiful with songbirds, particularly during fall and spring migrations.

Wildlife Loop Trail is a mere half-mile that begins and ends at a trailhead on the main refuge road, near the road leading to the refuge office. The trail never leaves the forest, although it passes close to wetlands in several places. A spur of the trail extends off the main path to a viewing blind overlooking a marsh. Songbirds are plentiful along this wooded trail, particularly during fall and spring migrations.

Directions: From Chestertown, MD, Take State Route 20 South to Rock Hall (12 miles). At Rock Hall turn left onto State Route 445 South. Travel 8 miles to reach the refuge. Visitors must drive across a wooden bridge to gain access. Once you cross Eastern Neck Narrows, stay on the main road passing Bogle's Wharf Road. About a half-mile beyond Bogle's Wharf Road you'll come to a large parking lot which provides trailhead parking for Wildlife Trail.
