King Solomon Creek - Routt County
Aliases: Little Red Park
Ownership: None Listed
Description: (Submitted by Andy Boyce): This small creek originating in the highlands around Farewell Mountain eventually drains into the Little Snake River. Where it runs through Little Red Park it supports fairly extensive willow carrs and some adjoining Lodgepole/Spruce-Fir forest. All of the normal willow-associated breeders are here, including Willow Flycatcher, Swainson's Thrush, and Fox and Lincoln's Sparrows. American Dipper breeds along the creek. In addition to the willow habitat, the forest on either side of the creek has breeding Pine Grosbeaks, and probably lots more. Camping is available at a USFS campground near the intersection of FR 500 and FR 550.

Habitat: Streamside Willow; Lodgepole Forest; Spruce-Fir Forest
Directions: To reach this area, follow Rd 129 north past Steamboat Lake until you reach a right-hand turn marked FR 550. Follow this road to the intersection with FR 500.
