A 4+ mile foot-access nature trail, opened in 2011, meanders through seasonal wetlands, restored riparian woodlands and old-growth valley oak stands. The trailhead features interpretive kiosks and picnic areas. Open sunrise to sunset daily. We will search for late spring migrants and breeding birds such as Black-chinned Hummingbird and Yellow Warbler.
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. This is a 1/2 to 3/4 day trip, so pack a lunch and bring water. Restrooms are available at beginning of walk. Trail is primarily gravel flat levee road. Pre-registration is not required, and all are welcome. Heavy rain cancels.
