Grant - Park County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This tiny town is the southern terminus of the Guanella Pass road. Its main claim to fame is the second state record of Pyrrhuloxia that showed up near here one summer. The Park County portion of the Guanella Pass road can be good for typical mountain birds, but beware--it is irregularly maintained in winter.

Habitat: Urban/Suburban, Mountain Meadow, Streamside Willow, Stream, Mixed Conifer Forest
Directions: Grant is along US 285, 39 miles southwest of the junction of US 285 and C-470 in southwest Denver.
