From Highway 12 near Pasco and east of Burbank turn south onto Hanson Loop Rd and follow it as it curves back to the west (right). You can turn left (south) on Game Rd and follow it down the hill and across the railroad track to the small parking lot. Or you may choose to stay on Hanson Loop for approximately another mile to the Burbank Arena on the left which affords plenty of parking.
The Burbank Peninsula is part of the 15,000 acres of sloughs, ponds, streams and islands that make up the McNary National Wildlife Refuge. The Refuge extends along the east bank of the Columbia River in southeastern Washington, from the confluence of the Snake River to the mouth of the Walla Walla River, and downstream into Oregon. Established in 1956, McNary NWR was created to replace wildlife habitat lost to construction of the McNary Dam downstream. The McNary Refuge supports excellent populations of migratory waterfowl, shorebirds, songbirds, pelicans, raptors, a host of mammal species, and as many reptiles and amphibians as can be found anywhere in the Columbia Basin. The Burbank Peninsula is a large portion of the McNary Refuge.
The Burbank Peninsula is on the outskirts of the small town of Burbank and can be accessed by a gravel road that leads down the hill from Hanson Loop. It can also be accessed from the parking lot of the Burbank Arena. Parking at the arena and riding down the hill lengthens your ride by about two miles.
Waterfowl and deer hunting are allowed in the appropriate season. Please check your hunting regulations and do not ride from October through January. The Peninsula has very little activity from February through September.
