William Finley National Wildlife Refuge Things to Do: 16 reviews and 74 photos
Linking the Mill Hill Trail and Woodpecker Trail loops, this trail helps create six miles of contiguous all year hiking trail within the refuge. (An additional 6 miles is available only during the non-migration period.)
Unfortunately there are no benches of any sort along this trail that would allow someone to just sit and wait for wildlife to pass through, unlike some of the other trails within the refuge.
The trail is entirely in dense forest, and therefore in and of itself does not offer much in the way of spectacular views. However, there are some great views offered on both the Woodpecker Trail and the Mill Hill trail, and this trail helps create a great recreational trail system out of what would normally be two short segments.
There is one road crossing of the Finley Refuge Road, and even that road is very lightly traveled most of the time, so you should not hear too much traffic noise.
Several small streams are crossed, but the bridges that are in place are adequate to the task of crossing them. Some of these are seasonal, and don't exist in the high summer months.
Directions: From Woodpecker Trail trailhead, go straight at 1st junction and left at 2nd junction. From Mill Hill Trail trailhead, go right on trail loop, and turn right at 2nd junction.
