Hill Canyon is an area near Santa Rosa County Park. We will bird along the creek and into Hill Canyon.

Head east on Santa Rosa Road for maybe 2-3 miles to a small road on the right with a sign for Santa Rosa County Park. Head up that road about 1/4 mile to a large gravel parking area on the left. Park and meet there at 8:30. Alternatively, people may park in the County Park parking lot for a fee and walk to the free gravel parking area.
