Birding and Hiking Little Hyatt Lake


Join Shannon Rio for a leisurely day of hiking and birding the pacific crest trail into Little Hyatt Lake. This 8-mile hike starts at Hwy 66 where the PCT takes us through meadows and woods to our lunch spot of Little Hyatt. Migratory birds and resident birds are nesting in this area. The hike is level and rated easy. Upon arrival at the lake, we will enjoy lunch and whatever birds are visiting there. Usually, dippers are in Keene Creek and Osprey like to fish in the lake. Our hike will take us back to our vehicles via the road.

Date: Saturday, July 2nd, 7 am – 3 pm.

Directions: Meet at Rite Aid to carpool the 1/2 hour drive to the Greensprings Summit where we will park and walk from there.
Wear comfy hiking shoes, bring lunch and liquids, binoculars, and cameras. Our pace will be slow as we bird and study flowers along the way.

Drive your own car if you prefer or let us know if you would like to be a passenger.

Suggested donation: $0-$50.
