Baring Plantation

Map shows trails in Washington County.

  • Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge — Along with its twin farther south, the Moosehorn Refuge in Edmunds Division, this refuge protects nearly 30,000 acres for wildlife—which include humans who are allowed to walk in some parts and drive in others. The walking trails in the Baring Plantation are easy to follow, but they don’t seem well-trafficked. They are wooded, and pass by bogs and ponds. You’re not allowed to swim in any of the water bodies. It seems like some of the wider jeep tracks here would make for good Nordic skiing if you’re visiting in the winter.
