Monthly Field Trip to Chilao

Birding the San Gabriel Mountains along the Angeles Crest.

We will look for Hairy and White-headed Woodpeckers, Mountain Chickadee, Pygmy Nuthatch and many other montane species. Bring lunch and water.

Note these different directions to Chilao this year, as Hwy 2 is closed north of La Canada-Flintridge due to the storm damage: From the 210 Fwy, exit Sunland Blvd, proceed east into Sunland and turn left on Oro Vista. Oro Vista becomes Big Tujunga Canyon Road. Continue until the road ends at Angeles Forest Hwy. Turn left on Angeles Forest Hwy and proceed about 4 miles to Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road. Turn right and go approx 10 miles to Angeles Crest Hwy (Hwy 2). Turn left and proceed to the Chilao Visitor Center.
