HikingGreat!

Short out and back path with a dock. This is a fresh water lake and was almost dry. There was a huge alligator sunning near the small pond of water that was there. This was the first alligator I had ever seen in the wild and it was a beauty.

The trail is supposed to be a 1.4 mile loop but it has been truncated to 0.8 miles (1.6 miles out and back). Excellent for bird viewing - there are two good observation platforms. On this blue sky, 70 degree afternoon we saw a black snake in the weeds and an alligator in one of the ponds.

HikingGreat!

Nice little out and back trail with great views of Heron Flats. We observed several different bird species, including Whooping Cranes. There is a an observation platform at both end of the trail.

Very short trail through a live oak forest (motte). Didn't see many songbirds but saw an armadillo up close.

The trailhead is more secluded as it is off the main refuge loop, watch out for potholes big enough to bottom out low-clearance vehicles. The trail rolls gently through ancient sand dunes that are now covered with dense yaupon and bayberry brush, with live oaks forming a canopy on the eastern side of the loop. A small rough side trail off of the main Dagger Point trail leads to a beach littered with dead live oaks that probably fell during Hurricane Harvey. Lots of birds and armadillos.

Flat and straight but an interesting rail. Look for alligators, waterfowl and birds especially on the center and north sections.

The “wildest” of all the trails on the refuge. The trail is close to the water but you rarely see it — this route takes you deep into wooded areas and to the top of a small hill for nice views.

A great place to observe the many shorebirds and water birds. Walk to the end to go up a low-rise observation platform for a good view over the trees.
