The Prairie’s Edge Wildlife Drive is a 7.3 mile loop in the Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge. At the beginning of the drive is the Bur Oak Visitors Station, with pit toilets, outdoor interpretive signs and several walking paths. There is a huge replica of an eagles nest that you can enter through a wooden ramp.
Traveling the dirt road loop in your car will take you through prairies, wetlands and a forest, varied and beautiful scenery greets you at every turn. We saw about 50 swans in the wetlands on our drive. There are several viewing station where you can park and enjoy the view.
The Prairie’s Edge Wildlife Drive is open to vehicles April – October and year-round to hiking.
