This is a 6-mile, one-way walk geared for birders who like to combine walking with birding.

We'll leave cars at each end of the walk and bird 6 miles one way at a pace slow enough to hear and see as many birds as possible. We'll start on a local trail in Newport Hills and end at Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park. After walking about 3 miles, we'll cross Coal Creek Parkway where it intersects with Forest Drive, and soon join the Coal Creek Trail, hiking another 3 miles before crossing over Lakemont Boulevard to return to our cars at Cougar Mountain. We'll then carpool back to the other cars we left at the beginning of our walk.

At any time of year, the trails can be wet and muddy, so waterproof shoes/boots are a must. Hiking poles are not required but may be useful to some. Dress in layers and bring a day pack with snacks and liquids.

Meet at the Newport Hills P&R (I-405, exit 9), north end of lot, by 6 a.m. We'll return by noon. Carpool $2/passenger. Make $25 Birdathon donation online or bring cash or check. Email Sharon Aagaard at scormieraa001@hotmail.com with questions and to register. Call (425) 891-3460 on day of trip only.
