Fall is a wonderful time to check out migrant and resident birds in Sugarloaf’s diverse habitats. Join Carolyn Greene, bird-nerd and Certified California Naturalist on an easy 2-mile walk along Creekside and Lower Bald Mountain trails. Emphasis will be on ear-birding and recognizing multiple ID characteristics in the field. No prior birding experience needed; just bring a curiosity and appreciation for birds.

Tickets are $10 for general audiences, $5 for students, youth (12-17 year olds; must be accompanied by an adult), Sugarloaf members, Sugarloaf volunteers, and free for children under 12 years old. Meet at the White Barn. Wear layers, comfortable footwear, sun protection, water, and if desired, a snack. If you have them, we recommend bringing binoculars, scope, camera, and/or bird identification guides. Parking fees apply.

Ease of access: The White Barn parking area has one van-designed parking spot. The western side of Creekside Nature Trail is a composite dirt and gravel trail of 0.45 miles that is ADA-compliant. Its western trailhead is across from the main parking lot. Lower Bald Mtn Trail starts at the main parking lot. It is a single-track dirt and gravel trail with multiple narrow switchbacks and inclines for an elevation gain of approximately 500ft.
