Sunrise Dr, Woodside (8:30 – 11:30am)
We will look for birds in an area of willows, oak and buckeye trees along a small creek and in second-growth redwoods.
We are likely to see both year-round resident birds, and summer visitors preparing to migrate. Our approximately 2.5-mile walk will take us by tributaries of Alambique Creek to a historic logging bridge. Most of the route is on paved or unpaved roads of slight to moderate grade. Typical woodland hazards such as ticks, poison oak, and yellowjackets are present in the area. There is no water or restroom at the parking area, although there is a pit toilet about 1/3 of the way along the walk.
Directions: Take Hwy 84 (La Honda Road) headed west from I-280 to the intersection with Skywood Way. Turn right on Skywood Way and follow it to the intersection with Sunrise Drive. Turn right onto Sunrise Drive and park alongside the right shoulder (In area near 100 Sunrise Dr, Woodside, CA 94062 on GPS). Air Quality Index over 150 cancels.
