Mill Creek Road - Archuleta County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Just east of Pagosa Springs is some of the best Ponderosa forest in the state. Towards the end of FR 029, Williamson's Sapsucker is the most common woodpecker, and you can also find good numbers of Virginia's and Grace's Warblers, Red Crossbills, and even Band-tailed Pigeons. Flammulated and Saw-whet Owls are probably common in this area also.

Habitat: Ponderosa Forest
Directions: From US 160 just east of Pagosa Spring, head south on US 84. A quarter mile south of US 160, turn left (east) on Mill Creek Road (CR 302). Roughly six miles up the road, turn right onto FR 665, then take another right in a little under two miles on FR 029. This road goes through excellent habitat, particularly near its end.
