Mitchell Canyon Visitor Center

96 Mitchell Canyon Road, Clayton, CA


We'll start the evening at Mitchell Canyon listening for bird calls. As twilight approaches we plan to be in the upper portion of White Canyon looking for bats flying low overhead. Next comes the sounds of the Common Poorwill & Owls. The returning walk in the dark may turn up some interesting wildlife! 

Bring flashlight, binoculars, liquids, and hiking poles if you use them. Please dress for the weather. Hike is about 3 miles round trip, with some elevation gain. We ask that participants not vaccinated against Covid 19 please wear a mask. Please register with the leader. Limited to 15 participants.

Reservations required:

$6 per vehicle/$5 for seniors - exact change only. Payable at the entrance to the Park by the stop sign.
