Coyote Hills Nature Hike
Please join us for an enjoyable Free Nature Walk along the trails of West Coyote Hills. In Fall, buckwheat flowers dry to a rusty brown-red. And if provided with enough early morning dew and longer cool nights, many native plants begin sprouting new growth. Many different bird species migrate south through here; some stay and some continue to their wintering grounds. And we always have the rare opportunity to hear or see a threatened bird, the California Gnatcatcher, which lives here year ’round. On clear days the views of Orange County and local mountains are spectacular and picture-worthy.
It’s a moderately easy 2 to 2 1/2 mile hike (with some uphill climbing) suitable for the entire family. It is a wonderful time to enjoy a walk in the West Coyote Hills – breathe in fresh air, soak up the sunshine and be out-of-doors. Doggies are welcome as long as they are on a leash.
