First Fork Road (FR 622) - Archuleta County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: The lower section is similar to the Lower Piedra Campground which is just across the river. However, the main attraction is the higher elevation portions of the road. Three-toed Woodpeckers, Olive-sided and Hammond's Flycatchers, and other higher elevation birds are all possible along this road. It is best to park along the road at various points and bird the different habitats, especially the spruce/fir.

Habitat: Ponderosa Forest, Mountain Meadow, Mixed Conifer Forest, Spruce-Fir Forest
Directions: From US 160 around mile-marker 122 turn north on signed First Fork Road which is FR 622. This road parallels the Piedra River on the east side and climbs to higher elevations.
