Shorebird Festival - Overlook Park Hike Last Updated on 2011-04-24 18:28:257 am – 3 pm/Meet at the Islands & Ocean Visitor Center for transportation to the trailhead
Spend the day enjoying this guided, strenuous, 6.5 mile hike along the north shore of Kachemak Bay to visit Overlook Park, an undisturbed pocket of native coastal habitat, and a remote unit of the Alaska Sate Park system. View shorebirds, sea ducks, marine mammal, ravens and eagles along the shore and bluff, as well as early songbird migrants and waterfowl around the ponds in the Park. This all –day hike is considered strenuous due to length, steep and uneven terrain, creek crossing and unimproved trail. Bring binoculars, lunch, water, raingear and sturdy, waterproof knee boots. Proceeds benefit the management of Overlook Park.
Limit 12. $10pp.
Sponsored by the Kachemak Bay Conservation Society
