Irish Canyon - Moffat County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: If you are visiting Brown's Park, this interesting canyon is worth a quick visit or even an overnight stay as it hosts a primitive BLM campground. The primary habitat of the canyon is pinyon-juniper and thus attracts most of the bird species associated with that habitat. Irish Canyon is probably the best public access area in Moffat County to find Chukars. Praire Falcons and White-throated Swifts nest on the canyon walls. Be sure to look at the great pictographs at the southern end of the canyon.

Habitat: Rimrock/Mesa, Pinyon-Juniper Forest
Directions: Irish Canyon is located in the northwest part of Moffat County on County Road 10 between Highway 318 and the Wyoming state line. The canyon begins about six miles north of the intersection of Highway 318 and County Road 10 and is several miles long.
