I went to this wildlife refuge with my wife,cousin and his wife. We walked a trail and saw numerous birds and other wildlife in the marsh. The trail was easy and is well worth it if you want to surround yourself with nature. We can't wait to go back again!

Monday 4/15/13 my sister and I visited this beautiful place. Weather cooperated and no bugs!!
We hiked several trails as my bones can attest to. There were places all that could be heard were the birds...it was wonderful!! We saw hawks, various ducks and birds and several osprey. The visitor center was very clean and beautiful and the people (and dog) were also very friendly. We will definitely go back as we didn't get to all the trails and hope to see more of the wildlife.

I recently had the opportunity to walk a number of the trails at the Mississiquoi and they provide good insight into a fascinating ecosystem. Bring binoculars, be quiet and patient, and you will certainly have good opportunities to see wildlife (deer, beaver, raptors,fox, wading birds, etc.). But be prepared for hordes of persistent and aggressive biting flies in August. Copious amounts of insect repellent were not enough to keep them away even if it kept bites to a minimum.
