Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge has two walking trails and one auto tour route

Nestled in gently rolling foothills of the Ozark Mountains, Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge is home to wildlife as unique as the bald eagle and as elusive as the bobcat. Fertile bottomlands at the confluence of the Arkansas and Canadian Rivers make this east-central Oklahoma refuge a terrific wildlife viewing destination south of Vian.

Stroll along the paved, 1-mile Horton Slough Nature Trail which begins near the information kiosk at the refuge headquarters. The trail commonly features wood ducks and their broods, migrating and resident warblers, herons, and egrets. You'll follow the north shore of Horton Slough to a boardwalk and observation pier overlooking Sally Jones Lake, and return along the south side of the slough.
