Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve

Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve Professional Review and Guide

"The west side of the preserve is laced with a spiderweb of trails squeezed between the wetlands and Irvine Avenue. The longest, most interesting walk in the preserve involves making a loop of up to 3 miles along these trails.

Follow the trail from the east end of the parking area down through a native butterfly garden to the Muth Interpretive Center."

"Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve is a 142-acre upland habitat adjacent to the Upper Newport Bay Ecological Preserve. The nature preserve is on the north and northwest end of the upper
bay, known as Back Bay.

The route makes a small loop atop 75-foot bluffs on the west bank of the upper bay. The trail includes a great view of the wetland sanctuary, home to nearly 200 species of birds."
