Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve Reviews
I live very close to this beautiful backbay nature preserve. I usually take an hour or two and hike at this place. There are many hiking routes, from easy to medium, from as short a walk as you want..... more »
Spectacular views down the Newport Bay preserve area, an amazing sight to see nature in this pristine state near so much development. more »
So pretty! We went around 5 PM in the summer and it was windy and not too warm. There are hiking, biking and horse trails, but do not offer rentals. It’s dog friendly. The interpretive center opens 10 AM-4 PM while the bathrooms are open 6 AM-4 PM. You can spot many birds, sometimes in flocks, but the only place you can get up close to the river and the greens is by the interpretive center. There are long trails for you to walk which are easy, regularly-used and wide. The view is very worth it! There are many different areas where you can stand on a rock and look at the views while you’re hiking. We also saw fish jumping out of the river!
This is very nice place to run and walk at. There are many different trails to choose from, from dirt paths to bike paths. The views are the nicest in the spring when the plants are green but in the summer the water views are just as nice. It is hard to get sick of the variations of paths to take.
