Coalmont Lek - Jackson County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: If you ARE in North Park between late March and mid-May, don't miss the spectacle of fifty Greater Sage-Grouse males bouncing, bubbling and popping their way into the females' hearts. The "thundercluckers" are somewhat accustomed to viewers, but please take every precaution to keep from disturbing them. According to recent reports, the road into the lek parking lot is no longer open, so the birds must be observed more distantly from CR 26.

Habitat: Sagebrush
Directions: From the intersection of state routes 14 and 125 a little over a mile south of Walden, go 14.5 miles south on 14 to CR 26 (26A). Take a right (west) onto CR 26 and go a little over 1.5 miles to a dirt track leading 100 yards north to a large parking lot. The lek is to the N of the parking lot, and can be seen well from your car. CR 26 is 18.5 miles north of the intersection of CO 14 and US 40 near Muddy Pass.
