Tram Tours at Refuge

Observe wildlife at Hagerman NWR aboard our open air, all-electric Carlos and Eulalia Cardinal Express Tram!  Tours are set for 2 pm each Saturday and Sunday, weather and lake level permitting. Your driver/guide points out and identifies wildlife along the Wildlife Drive during the 90-minute tour, making frequent stops for photo taking.

Tram tours are recommended for age 6 - adult. For information and to make reservations, please call the Refuge, 903 786 2826 during Nature Nook hours, 9 am - 4 pm, Tuesday - Saturday and 1 - 5 pm on Sundays. Please do not leave voicemail messages as volunteers cannot retrieve them.

Tram tours are free of charge; however,  donations are accepted for the maintenance fund.

Service dogs are allowed on the tram; no other animals are allowed.

Special tours may be arranged for groups of up to 12 individuals.  Call the Refuge and leave a contact message for the Friends, for details.
