Accessible Greenbelt Plateau Trailhead - Boulder County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: In recent years this has been one of the easiest spots to find breeding Grasshopper Sparrows in Boulder County. The birds can be found in small numbers in the grassland to the north and east of the trailhead. Vesper Sparrows are abundant.

Habitat: Grassland/Prairie
Directions: This trailhead is located on the northeast corner of the junction of CO 93 and CO 128 south of Boulder. If you do not find Grasshopper Sparrows here, you might also want to check around the Flatirons Vista Trailhead, a half-mile south on the west side of CO 93.
