Located along the Atlantic Flyway in northeastern Maine, the Missisquoi NWR trails offers beautiful desolate views of the Missisquoi River delta. The area encompasses 6,338 acres of nesting habitat for waterfowl, perching birds and raptors. Begin the hike from behind the Refuge office and travel through an open field crossing over a railroad track before entering the thick woodlands. There are interpretive markers to accompany the many sights and sounds of this northern wetland which actually resembles a wetland found in southern states. The trail makes a loop between Maguam Creek and Black Creek with a short spur trail leading to a lookout. This is a great place for wildlife viewing. In addition to the geese, hawks and ducks, the NWR is home to coyotes, river otters, white-tailed deer and much more.
