Heron Flats Trail Guide: Welcome to the Heron Flats Trail. The mile and a half traversed by this trail, with freshwater sloughs, shell ridges, oak forest, and tidal flats, is the most diverse area of the Refuge. Here you can see at close hand many of the plants and habitats that are spread widely over the Refuge, as well as some that occur only here.
