Briones Regional Park (Lafayette)

June 4 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

We will walk a relatively flat 2 miles, round trip, up the Abrigo Trail from Bear Creek Staging area through oak woodland and grassland to Maud Whalen campground.  Hope to see Bullock’s Orioles, Lazuli Bunting, Ash-throated Flycatchers, nesting Barn Swallows, Western Kingbird plus various woodland species.    Restrooms or portapotty at the start and supposedly at Maud Whalen campground.   Please bring binoculars.  It could be hot, so you may want to bring water and a hat, too.

Leader: Cathy Bleier, (510) 414-5719 cell, csbleier@sbcglobal.net

This trip is free but advance registration is required. Registration will open two weeks before the trip and close at 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 2.  Directions for registered participants are below.

Please note the public health guidelines for this trip, as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic:

  • Walk is limited to 25 participants plus the leaders. There will not be a waiting list.

  • Participants must register online and acknowledge acceptance of our liability waiver. Each person must register separately. No “drop ins,” please.

Thank you for your flexibility in helping us ensure that everyone remains healthy! Because we have to limit the size of trips, please do not sign up unless you are committed to attending.


DIRECTIONS: Take the Bear Creek Staging Area park entrance off Bear Creek Road (about 5 miles northeast of San Pablo Dam Road or 4 miles southeast of Alhambra Valley Road). We’ll meet at the first parking lot on your left after the kiosk. $3 parking fee will be charged if attendant is present.
