Calling all early birds! Rise and shine and hit the trails before Flock to the Rock begins for the best chance to spot more of our feathered friends. The early bird walk was designed to start before the Park opens to ensure participants get the best chance to encounter a variety of native and migrating birds. This hike is considered moderate and is the prelude to the our 15th Annual Flock to the Rock event which starts at 11am. Click here to see what birds you might encounter during your hike.
