Havasu National Wildlife Refuge

Havasu National Wildlife Refuge information

Coming from California, Route 66 enters Arizona at Topock, near the 20-mile Topock Gorge , a dramatic walled canyon that’s one of the prettiest sections of the Colorado River. It’s part of the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge , a major habitat for migratory and water birds. Look for herons, ducks, geese, blackbirds and other winged creatures as you raft or canoe through the gorge. There are plenty of coves and sandy beaches for picnics and sunning.
