Saturday, July 28th at 9:00 AM
Our summer hike is one for all ages.  The Bay Trail Loop in the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve is a very easy and fun five mile loop hike that takes you on trails down along the bluffs overlooking Upper Newport Bay, then back up along the shoreline with world-class wildlife spotting, and then across the Northern edge of the Preserve to San Diego Creek.  This Nature Preserve is home to some 200 bird species, including some endangered species, making it a top bird watching destination.


This hike also features short and long options.  The first three miles will loop to the Southwest along the bluffs and then back up along the shoreline, returning very near the trailhead (at the Peter and Mary Muth Interpretive Center).  The second two mile walk will head to the East, out and back on the bike trail to where San Diego Creek empties into the bay (and where Jamboree crosses over the creek).  This is a particularly sunny hike, which is one reason why we will start early.  The other reason is so we walk the shoreline of the bay at mid-tide.


Start Time: Arrive at the trailhead by 8:45 AM, we will depart promptly at 9:00 AM.
Meeting Location: We will meet at the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve parking lot.  OC Parks map here.
