Enjoy an easy to moderate walk on a dirt road for a two to three mile round trip to look for raptors, woodpeckers, thrushes, vireos and warblers. Scopes can be useful, but they are not necessary. Lunch is optional as we recap the list after the walk. Restrooms are available. Heavy rain cancels.
Directions: Take Hwy 24 east or 680-north to Walnut Creek; exit at Ygnacio Valley Rd. Proceed east 8.5 miles to Clayton Rd; turn right. Drive one mile to Mitchell Canyon Rd.; turn right. At the end of the road, enter the park after paying the $6 entry fee. Meet at the parking lot.
