Stony Pass Road - Jefferson County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Continuing south from Wellington Reservoir, this dirt road (rough in the spring, and closed in the winter) provides good access to mixed-conifer woodland, along with aspen groves and streamside willows. The lower portions of this road to the north can be good for Williamson's Sapsucker, and the higher portions contain Northern Saw-whet Owl, in addition to the regular mountain species. Continuing south on this road, and then on CR 211 after the intersection, will bring you through more of the same habitat to the southern end of Jefferson County (where few birders have trodden).

Habitat: Mixed-Conifer Forest, Aspen Grove, Streamside Willow
Directions: From Wellington Reservoir, continue south on Wellington Lake Road, which becomes FR 560. Follow this road south over Stony Pass, and into the bowels of southern Jefferson County. An atlas is highly recommended if you decide to explore this area.
