The island is open year-round. The restrooms are closed for the winter season, usually October through April. During those months, you will find a portable toilet near the restroom. President Roosevelt was known for taking government officials and diplomats on hard hikes. Although not a very hard hike, here you can enjoy his legacy. Bird watching is great and the wildflowers are beautiful during spring and early summer. You may walk or jog through the trails.
