Triple N Ranch - Things to Do
Great scenery and abundant wildlife create excellent opportunities for hunting, wildlife viewing, hiking, bicycling and horseback riding. Note that the area is closed to other uses during special opportunity hunts and closed to vehicles except on hunting or scouting days.
Enjoy special opportunity deer and turkey hunts, as well as seasons for quota hog hunts and small game. Appropriate licenses and permits are required. Check the hunt calendar and regulations summary brochure for an area map, specific dates and quota permit requirements.
If you see a sick or abnormally thin deer or deer dead of unknown causes, please report its location to the CWD hotline, (866) CWD-WATCH (293-9282).
Hiking, Bicycling, and Horseback Riding
Enjoy hiking, bicycling and horseback riding through a variety of habitats. Hikers and bicyclists may explore miles of trails; equestrians are restricted to named or numbered roads, except during small game season when hunting from horseback is permitted. See the regulations summary brochure for details. Note that sandy soils and periodic flooding can make hiking and bicycling more challenging. Download the Triple N Ranch WMA trail map.
Some of the best, most accessible wildlife viewing opportunities are along the loop road and the trails beside the creeks. More than 130 bird species have been documented to occur on or near the area, as well as 60 species of butterflies. The WMA is within a designated Critical Butterfly Diversity Area. Visit the Wildlife page for more information.
Camping is available at the main entrance camping area only during periods open to hunting. See the regulations summary brochure for more information.
