Cottonwood Marsh photo by Peter Burke

Accessible Sand Hills Reservoir - Weld County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This place has great potential for shorebirds when the water is low, and decent potential for waterfowl and gulls at other times. It is bordered by a little marsh and a few cottonwoods; scanning is good from the road to the south.

Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir, Marsh
Directions: The best way to get to Sand Hills Reservoir is to take CO 52 to CR 23 (7 miles east of exit 235 off I-25, a bit under 2 miles west of US-85 in Fort Lupton), and go north for 2.5 miles to a "T" with CR 18. The reservoir can be scanned from this road, in either direction from CR 23.
