A 4+ mile foot-access nature trail which meanders through seasonal wetlands, restored riparian woodlands and old-growth valley oak stands. The trailhead features interpretive kiosks and picnic areas and restrooms. Drinking water is not available. Open sunrise to sunset daily. We will search for late spring migrants and breeding birds such as Black-chinned Hummingbird and California Thrasher. We typically find 1 or 2 Yellow-breasted Chat. Trail is primarily gravel flat levee road. Pre-registration is not required, and all are welcome. Heavy rain cancels.
Directions: You can reach the Pelican Nature trailhead by taking I-580 to CA-132 East (towards Modesto). Take a right on River Road and go 3 miles; then take a left on Dairy Road and go 1.5 miles. The parking area is approximately 40 minutes from Livermore.
