Featuring 11,000 acres of outdoor recreation opportunities, Hagerman NWR is an excellent destination for wildlife viewing, hiking, fishing, boating, and (regulated) hunting. In addition, the Friends of Hagerman offer many activities, events, seminars, and volunteer opportunities. Refuge lands and lakeshores are open and accessible from sunrise to sunset every day of the year—even when the visitor center is closed. Restrooms are located at the Visitor Center, the Goode Day Use Area (near Haller's Haven Trail), the Big Mineral Day Use Area (near Meadow Pond Trail), and Sandy Day Use Area.
Hagerman NWR features five inviting and well maintained. All mileage is round trip.
Haller's Haven Trail
2.7 Miles, Partial Loop, Easy
This trail offers a great view of the refuge at the top of an easy hill. Along the way you'll first pass Picnic Pond, then Dead Woman's pond which is often teaming with wildlife.
3 Miles, Down and Back, Easy
Walk through a range of several different habitats and search for Eastern Bluebirds and other songbirds.
Harris Creek Trail
0.25 ADA Trail, 1.25 and 2.25 Mile Loops, Easy
This is the most popular trail, with several ponds and a photo blind.
Crow Hill Trail
0.75 Mile Loop, Moderate
Short and steep--see something new on every lap around!
Meadow Pond Trail
5.7 Miles, Down and Back, Mostly Gravel, Easy
Beginning with beautiful Deaver Pond and ending with Meadow Pond--two miles in-- this is one of the refuge's favorite trails. Come in June when the American Lotus flowers (right) are in bloom on the water.
