Mile High Duck Club Lakes - Adams County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: These lakes are privately owned by the Mile High Duck Club and are not generally accessible to the public. However, a few of them can be scanned from public roads, usually at a great distance. Check a few of the potholes (seasonally dry) along Bridge Street (160th Avenue) west of Gun Club Road (CR 18N).

The northernmost of the Mile High Duck Club Lakes can be partially scanned at a distance from the north along 168th Avenue (Weld CR 2) just east of the entrance to the I-25 frontage road. These ponds, one on each side of the railroad tracks, have lots of marsh and some cottonwoods. Check wet fields in this area for ibis in season.

The area along 160th Avenue and south of it along Duquesne (east of Gun Club Road) has many Russian-olives and is a good place to look for winter thrushes and waxwings.

Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir, Marsh, Hedgerow/Shelterbelt
Directions: From I-76 exit 22, follow Bromley Lane east for about 1.5 miles to Gun Club Road. Turn left (north) on Gun Club. Turning right on 156th will take you to Duquesne Circle on your left. Continuing straight right on Gun Club will take you to 160th, where a left turn will take you past a couple of the lakes. Turning right will take you towards Harvest Road. Turning left (north) on Harvest, you can drive one mile to 168th, which allows scanning of a few ponds from the north, in addition to the Lochbuie pond described under Weld County.
