Baskett Slough preserves a local wetland with diverse migratory wildfowl and raptors. The easy loop trail climbs several hundred feet up to overlooks with great views of the wetlands, inland valleys, and coast range. Even after a hotspell that dried up much of the slough, we saw lots of birds, and another hiker saw a bald eagle. Also a good place for observing invertebrates and wildflowers. A bonus was extensive beds of ripe, sweet, amazing blackberries (and also plenty of poison oak). Access by well graded dirt roads. Great family activity, easy enough for many kids and older adults. Bring water.
