Home / Events / The Bird Days of Summer: Hike & Bird East Canal Trail (Harney County)
Distance: 2 miles
Elevation Changes: This path is flat
Trail Tread and Width: Gravel surface, >36″ wide
Amenities: Vault toilets and water are available at Page Springs Campground (near the trailhead), there are no bathrooms or water along the trail.
Public Transit: No public transit
Rest Stops and pacing: We will move slowly and purposefully, with an eye out for not only the diversity of birds we may find, but the diversity of behaviors we may find along the trail. There will be fledglings out-and-about and some birds may be changing their behavior to post-breeding season characteristics. There are no benches along this trail.
Binoculars are available to borrow.

Join Portland Audubon’s Education and Conservation Teams for The Bird Days of Summer, a series of free, super beginner-friendly programs for anyone curious about birds in nature. We’re combining community-building, exploration, and fun to create safe spaces for people to get to know each other as well as the birds. Binoculars can be provided upon request, and we’ll begin each program with a short “how-to” to help you get started.
