Accessible Sandy Bluffs State Trust Land - Yuma County
Aliases:
Ownership: None Listed
Description: A large and beautiful piece of state land north of Idalia, Sandy Bluffs overflows with sandsage, yucca slopes, and eroded outcrops. Watch for Rock Wren, raptors, and sparrows (Cassin's, Lark and Vesper in the warmer months, White-crowned and possibly White-throated and Harris' in the colder months). The land is bisected by the Arikaree River, and a good deal of the mature cottonwood forest along the river bottom is accessible on foot. Look here for migrants and woodpeckers. Like most State Trust Lands, this one is seasonally closed.

Directions: Drive north from the town of Idalia on CR DD about eight miles to the property, which is on both sides of the Arikaree River. Obey posted limits on access.
