Sable Mountain Trail - Good Birding Location (Mile 37.5)



Pick up the trail right after you cross over Tatter Creek. Follow Tattler Creek upstream for 1/4 mile to a steep ravine that comes in from the left. Follow this ravine up until you reach a ridge that overlooks the Sable Pass restricted area. If you only plan to spend time on the ridge without going farther afield you may want to stock up on water in the ravine because there are no sources on the ridgeline. From the ridge you can choose to hike in several directions, all of which provide opportunities for spotting both large animals and birds, including the Arctic Warbler, Northern Wheatear, Townsend's Solitaire, and the Wandering Tattler. Total hiking time is between four and five hours.
