Cedar Mountain - Moffat County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: A good area to find bird species that prefer pinyon-juniper and mountain brush habitats in Moffat County is Cedar Mountain, located a few miles north of Craig. The mountain includes a BLM recreation area with hiking/biking trails. For those who neither hike nor bike, remoter areas of Cedar Mountain can be accessed by four-wheel drive roads.

The interior portion of Cedar Mountain is mostly mountain brush habitat, with the P-J habitat found along the upper ridges and outslopes of the mountain. In addition to the usual P-J and mountain brush birds, Cedar Mountain is a very reliable place to encounter Pinyon Jays.

Habitat: Pinyon-Juniper Forest, Foothill Shrub
Directions: To reach Cedar Mountain turn north from Highway 40 (Victory Way) onto CR 7 from the west side of Craig. Travel about 6 miles on CR 7 to the turnoff (right turn) to Cedar Mountain (if you reach the CR 31 intersection, you have gone about a mile too far).
