Alamosa River - Rio Grande County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Most of this route lies in Conejos County, but a short stretch near Jasper is in Rio Grande County. The willows and alders along the Alamosa River below Jasper warrant a search for Willow Flycatcher. Black-headed Grosbeak is fairly common. This road eventually reaches high meadows and bogs around Summitville and Elwood Pass. Passenger cars should not attempt to go west from Elwood Pass into Archuleta County.

Habitat: Stream, Streamside Willow, Mountain Meadow, Mixed Conifer Forest, Spruce-Fir Forest
Directions: West on FR 250 from Terrace Reservoir in Conejos County (q.v.).
