    Trail Difficulty: Moderate
    Directions: From east Denver north of I-70, go east on 56th Avenue past Peoria and Chambers toward Peña Boulevard
    (airport highway). About 2 blocks before Peña, parking is on left (green sign, fenced lot). Or, take 1-70 to Peña Blvd. exit.
    Drive north toward airport and exit at 56th Ave. At bottom of ramp, turn left at stoplight and go west under Peña
    overpasses. Parking lot is 2 blocks ahead on right.
    As fall migration ends, winter residents will have joined First Creek's year-round birds. Expect hawks and
    eagles, falcons, owls, Townsend's Solitaires and more. We'll walk Buckley Road's pavement and the open-space
    path along the creek upstream to Tower Road and back, checking First Creek's cottonwood groves and prairie
    dog town for raptors, woodpeckers and more. Time permitting, we'll also venture downstream along the First
    Creek Trail in Rocky Mountain Arsenal NWR next door. Expect to walk 3-4 miles of mostly level road and
    trail. Dress for the weather and bring water and snacks. NOTE: No restrooms at this location, so "go before you
    go" at the King Soopers in nearby Green Valley Ranch (49th and Tower) or use the open space's "green door"
    woods and bushes north of the creek. Register online or contact the leader.
