From Yuba City, travel south on Highway 99E approximately six miles to Oswald Road. Turn west and proceed five and one-half miles to Schlag Road. Travel north on Schlag Road for about one-eight of a mile, turn west onto Hughes Road, which bisects the Refuge. For access to the hiking trails (April-June) or the hunting check station, turn left onto the Bypass Levee and follow several miles. The parking area for the hiking area will be on the left (off the levee) at the very southern end of the Refuge (you will see a Refuge gate and kiosk).
