Trip Leader(s): Tom Leskiw
Drive along the designated National Forest Scenic Highway as we head inland Humboldt County, Willow Creek and the Trinity River. Nesting birds of the warmer interior portions of the county (Western Kingbird, Acorn Woodpecker and Western Tanager) will be the focus. Sought-for species include Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Spotted Sandpiper, and American Dipper near the spectacular Trinity River. One-way travel is about 1 hour. Expect variable terrain, including short, steep pitches on developed trails. Weather may be warmer than the coast, but there is always the possibility of rain. Please pack a lunch and bring a reusable water bottle, this trip will not stop for food. Restrooms are available 1 hour into the trip and on the return. Opportunity to use a spotting scope is limited.
