Leaders: Vicki Robinson & Jerry Ting

Join us as we explore this East Bay park. Vargas Plateau rises from the bay plain to an elevation of 1,000 feet, overlooking Niles Canyon, Fremont, Union City, Newark and the San Francisco Bay. A prime location for birdwatching, especially raptors, we will look for golden eagles and hawks such as red-tailed and cooper's, along with owls, turkeys, and other birds.


Directions: From I-680 in Fremont, exit at Vargas Road and go north. Drive about 1.6 miles to Morrison Canyon Road and turn right. The staging area is about 0.4 miles up on the left. Carpooling is strongly recommended as the staging area parking is limited and there is no street parking in the area.
