Is the 12 mile driving route through Bombay Hook wildlife refuge easily/safely driven in a regular, low-to-the-ground automobile, or does one need an SUV, pickup, or 4wheel drive vehicle? I'm not talking of driving after heavy rains or snows, of course. I assume the route isn't paved (?).

You are correct in that the 12 mile loop road is not paved. At least it wasn't last fall when we headed there. We had just purchased a new car and my husband was against driving on the dirt/rock road. Instead we drove the paved road to the visitor center and spent quite a bit of time there looking at their dioramas, maps, history story boards, etc. I hope one day to take the drive. I assume your interest was piqued after this past Sunday's article in the Dover paper on their 75th birthday?

It's a fairly well maintained gravel road that's wide enough for cars to pass one another and there are a lot of pull-over spots for the birders.

Thanks to you both. Sounds like it would be fine to drive in a normal car.
