Early Bird Watchers’ Hike

May 5 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am


Join the Sleeping Giant Park Association for our spring Early Bird hike. Participants will learn about some of the early migrant bird species making their way through the region, with a focus on those that use the Giant as a stopover area. This hike will be led by friend of SGPA, Jim Sirch.

This will be an easy to moderate hike, 2 hours or so with stops for discussion. Participants should dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable, supportive shoes with good traction. A day pack with binoculars, snacks, water, sunscreen and any other essentials is recommended.

Participants other than leader and helpers will be limited to 30 hikers. Please register each hiker separately. There will be a wait list so please cancel if you find that you cannot attend. If cancelled due to weather, you will be contacted by email that morning.


Out of consideration for other participants, dogs are not permitted on SGPA hikes. Children must be 8 or older. This hike leaves from the kiosk at the park’s main entrance at 8am. Please arrive 15 minutes early.

For additional information about this or other hikes, please contact SGPA’s hiking programs manager at [email protected].
