Migrating Bald Eagles at Cache Creek Canyon, Intermediate

  • Jan 27, 2013 · 8:00 AM
  • REI Sacramento

Alan (916)[masked]

This area and the surrounding hills are known for bald eagles as they continue to migrate into their natural habitat. There's plenty of catfish and carp for these wintering birds of prey as the reason they keep coming back and we'll be there again this year to experience their company. Hopefully, we'll see adults and juveniles this time. Our group has repeated this event many times over the past three years and were treated with some awesome views of them soaring majestically. Should the eagles and other wildlife be not available, the surrounding scenery and the hike itself are well worth the journey. The trails are well-maintained with elevation gains of about 650' with gradual moderate ups and downs thru switchbacks. We will hike a total of 9 1/2 miles and have lunch in between. No dogs, please. Rain cancels.

Bring plenty of water, packed lunch, rubber sandals, and trekking poles if you have them. Optional dinner at Granzella's in Williams.

Backpacker Magazine, September '10 issue published this hike with our group being recognized for the article. Cheers to the SHMG!

    What time will we get to the trailhead? My sister will meet us there since she lives up in Kelseyville. She's about 30 min away.
