Paynes Creek Wetlands Day Hike sponsored by the Sierra Club

This hike will explore the man-made wetlands on the BLM managed public land in the Bend area south of Redding. Distance will be about 3 miles over 2.5 hours. Will start from the Bass Pond parking lot on Bend Ferry Road, north of Red Bluff.  This is excellent habitat for many waterfowl and wading birds.  Be sure to bring your binoculars and camera. The hike will be across moderate terrain with only brief sections of steep ground.  We will be on primitive trails that may be wet this time of year.  Be sure to wear sturdy hiking shoes and clothing appropriate for the weather.  Bring lunch or snack and water.  We will meet at the Bass Pond parking lot at 9:00 am.

Leader Kelly Williams,[masked], [masked], Co-Leader Marti Weidert, [masked][masked]. Call or email Kelly for questions and to sign up

    Kelly did a great job sharing about the vernal pools, the history, and taking us to Paynes Creek to learn about the earliest human inhabitants.The outing was wonderful, educational, and a wonderful group of people.
