Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Aransas National Wildlife Refuge is internationally recognized as the wintering grounds for North America’s largest migratory flock of endangered whooping cranes (called “hoopers” by Texans).

Over 200 birds make the 2400-mile journey from their nesting grounds at Wood Buffalo National Park in Canada’s Northwest Territories to the Aransas NWR each year. From late October to mid-April you can find crane families feeding in the saltwater marshes of the refuge along with a stunning number of shorebirds."
