DescriptionCanada Goose Drive runs through the Cibola National Wildlife Refuge along the Colorado River in western Arizona. It provides access to the Nature Trail and a viewing area for Canada geese, snow geese, ducks and sandhill cranes in a 20-acre pond.
The Nature Trail is a one-mile loop that will take the visitor through three different native habitats; cottonwood, mesquite, and willow. Halfway around the trail, the winter visitor will view thousands of Canada geese, snow geese, ducks and sandhill cranes in a 20-acre pond from an elevated observation deck. The deck is designed to allow the wildlife to feed and loaf without being disturbed and allow the quiet visitor to experience these wildlife up close.
This drive is open from one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset.
Exit I-10 about 3 miles west of Blythe at Neighbors Boulevard - Exit 78. Go south on Neighbors for 12 miles to the Cibola Bridge. After crossing the bridge, continue south for 3.5 miles to the Cibola National Wildlife Refuge headquarters.
