It goes by 6 springs, a pond and deep forest, where you can see an abundance of birds (hence the name).

Nice hike but the neighborhood part would have been confusing if we hadn't had the trail map on our phones. Plenty of birds, wild flowers and shade.

Would had given it a 4-star trail. However, the constant interference of mountain bikers a bit annoying. Considering there are some narrow paths along ridge line. Does have a great stopping area midway through the hike for the kiddo's. Perfect distance if you have little ones.

Bird song trail has two options 1- up and back
2- do the loop .
1- up and back park in the south west back corner parking lot at Rainbow Gardens the trail head has s large wooden sign over head , trail forks stay right , traveling up along a hill then overlooking the golf course , threw some trees resting at the bench .
There's a small stream of water to enjoy . Continue along trail up to the end of the hike at the l neighborhood street .
2- loop continue hiking threw the neighborhood reaching the 22nd street parking area , head up the trail to your left staying left dropping down into the small basin below shore line trail . Note there are trail markers to keep you on the right path , bird song trail .
Continue winding your way back to rainbow gardens . You know your on the right path when you see some very old 1908 to 2930 old cars stop and check them out .
Soon you arrive back to your car .
4 miles round trip fun hike great to get in shape

Not one of my favorites because you're constantly moving out of the way for mountain bikers. It also seems that this trail has taken quite a beating over the years, too. There are several different spots where the trail has given way, and completely fallen off from excessive use. But I used to walk this trail a lot with my grandmother when I was a kid, and always loved it. Stop in for some lunch or dinner afterward at Rainbow Gardens! It's usually only about an hour or so to complete.

This was a good first hike for us, too. Not much bird activity.

This was my first hike. Easy starter hike, very scenic. Not too long, but as others have said, it does get confusing when you reach the neighborhood and have to find where the trail reconnects.
