MDBA Field Trip — Del Puerto Canyon

April 22 @ 7:30 am - 3:00 pm

As we drive through Del Puerto Canyon, on the east side of the Diablo Range, we’ll be looking for Canyon Wren, Costa’s Hummingbird, Greater Roadrunner, and other goodies. It can get very warm! Bring lunch and plenty of liquids as this trip takes us further from conveniences that most of our outings.

Carpool leaves from Sycamore Valley Road Park and Ride at 730 AM.
OR: meet on Del Puerto Canyon Road, just west of I-5 at 9 AM. Take I-580 east to I-5 south to the Patterson exit (56 miles from Sycamore Valley Road). Turn right at the exit and onto Del Puerto Canyon Road.

Before the main caravan gets to Del Puerto Canyon Road we will pull off I-5 at the Larry Combs Rest Area, near Westley. There are no facilities between this location and our lunch stop.

Trail Rating: 1 – This is mostly a car trip, with several easy walks.
Leader: Steve Buffi (925) 200-4555

Due to the extremely limited parking at several stops along our route this trip is limited to 12 participants.
