The Wallkill National Wildlife Refuge encompasses a major portion of the Wallkill River which is unusual as it flows north between two major south-flowing rivers, the Hudson and the Delaware. The Refuge comprises nine miles of wetlands, marshes, and grassland meadows that support a variety of fish, amphibians, mammals, and approximately 225 species of birds. The Wood Duck Nature Trail is a self-guided 1.5-mile interpretive trail is an easy, flat path through wetlands on what was once a former railroad bed. There is a photography blind, a footbridge across Beaver Run, and benches for resting. There are two canoe and kayak access points, Park Headquarters where trail maps, self-guided brochures and information about wildlife in the Refuge can be obtained. The 2.7 mile Dagmar Dale Trail begins here and walking the two loops will take you through grasslands and hardwood forests. At Kelly Road there is parking for the Timberdoodle Trail. This is a self-guided walk, just under one mile, through woodlands, fields, wetlands and vernal pools.
