Conboy Lake National Wildlife Refuge’s seasonal marshes and pine- and fir-forested uplands are nestled at the base of Washington’s lovely snow-capped Mount Adams. This 5,500-acre refuge hosts large concentrations of migrating and wintering swans, geese, and ducks, as well as the only known nesting pairs of Sandhill Cranes in the state. Deer and Elk are residents, as are many smaller mammals. Beginning near the refuge headquarters, the 2-mile Willard Springs Trail follows the lake edge and leads into pine forests. In late July to early August, one of the most renowned wildflower spectacles in the Northwest can be seen at Bird Creek Meadows near the southeastern edge of Mount Adams.
