Meet at Mount Falcon Park EAST trailhead, just south of the town of Morrison.
This trip is limited to the first 6 registrations.
Denver Christmas Bird Count at Upper Bear Creek (UBC) Area 16.
Meet at the Mt Falcon East Trailhead parking lot (pit toilet available). We will hike the 3.5 mile Turkey Trot - Castle Trail loop. This trail is fairly strenuous uphill/downhill. Depending on the weather, this could be a beautiful hike with some snow/ice on the north side of the hill, or it could be a snowshoe hike all the way! The north side is almost always icy this time of year, so plan to bring hiking poles and/or traction. Trip leader will be in touch closer to the date about what to expect based on weather. We'll also plan to bird a few neighborhoods and Morrison Park, where dippers winter. We can expect to see scrub jays, Townsend's solitaires, American dippers, both black-capped and mountain chickadees, and possibly a canyon wren.
Please bring your picnic lunch, water, and any snacks. Dress in warm layers, bring any hiking equipment you'll want including hiking poles, yak trax, etc. Binoculars are great, scopes are not needed. Register online or contact the leader.
