Sabercat Creek trail follows a stream in Fremont with excellent riparian woodland in addition to many ornamentals. There are also grassy hillsides with sites for perching birds. We have a good chance to see both Allen’s and Anna’s hummingbirds and have a five woodpecker day. Since we will be in the middle of Spring migration we should see great birds. We will start the trip from Old Mission Park where parking is plentiful and restrooms available. After a couple of blocks of street walking we will access the trail at its Pine street entrance. Sabercat Creek has seen extensive excavations for fossils so there are many interpretive signs and even an online audio tour if you would rather listen to it than the birds. The trail is mostly. level and paved the entire way. Total length is 3.2 miles but since it is an out-and-back, you can turn around whenever you wish.

 

Directions: Old Mission Park is at 1000 Pine Street in Fremont. Heading south on I680, take the first Mission Blvd exit. Turn left on Mission and then left on Pine. The park will be at the intersection of Pine and Ibero Way. From I880 take the AutoMall Parkway/Durham Road Exit. Head east on Durham Road then left on Paseo Padre Parkway. Make a right on Camino del Campo and then left on Ibero Way to the park.
