Dotsero Ponds - Eagle County
Aliases: Frank Olsen Trailhead, Ute Trail
Ownership: None Listed
Description: (Contributed by Jerry Fedrizzi): Immediately south of I-70 at the Dotsero exit is Two River Park development, a small housing development with some lakes. Several types of waterbirds can be found here along with nesting Osprey.

Just north of the interstate exit along the Colorado River Road (CR 301) is the Frank Olsen Trailhead on the Ute Trail, which leads into good pinyon-juniper habitat for those who don't want to stray far from the interstate.

Habitat: Pond
Directions: Take the Dotsero exit off I-70 (exit 133). To get to the ponds, turn south for about a hundred yards and then turn right onto Buffalo Boulevard at the traffic circle. One pond is scannable to the north at the west end of Buffalo; another is south of Buffalo off any of several subdivision loop roads.
