Bear Creek Trailhead, Briones Regional Park

With the coming of winter rains, newts awake from their summer slumber and are in the mood for love. Our route takes us past the park’s lagoons where we will view these amorous amphibians “in action” and learn their fascinating natural history. We might even see and hear their little cousin, the Pacific chorus frog.
