Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Once threatened by urban growth sprawling south from metropolitan Sacramento, a short paved loop through restored wetlands at Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge focuses on education and expanding awareness of what came before shopping malls and freeways.

This one is for the kids. Though the Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge has been around since 1994, and guided hikes have been taking place on a small parcel of the 6,500-acre refuge near North Stone Lake for years, the Blue Heron Trails are a new addition, opened to the public in November 2011. The paved paths wind through a restored wetland and circle three small ponds that attract a variety of birdlife, including the stately sandhill crane."
