Foster, Sanborn and Mulligan Reservoirs - Weld County
Aliases: Sanborn Reservoir, Mulligan Reservoir
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Foster Reservoir, a good-sized private body of water, can be scanned from Foster Ridge Drive to the north from a distance of a quarter-mile. It can be scanned a little closer, but through more vegetation, from the south along CR 28. On your way from one end of Foster to the other you will pass Sanborn Reservoir, a medium-small private lake with decent scanning from the east along CR 7. Mulligan Reservoir is good-sized, but can only be scanned from a great distance, along CR 7 to the southwest, where parking is difficult.

Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir, Marsh
Directions: To reach the northern vantage point for Foster Reservoir, take exit 243 off of I-25 (CO 66) and go west for about a half-mile to Foster Ridge Drive, on the left. Take this road to its end to scan the lake. To get to the southern vantage point, go past Foster Ridge Drive on CO 66 to CR 7 (1 mile from I-25), and take a left (south).
