Description: This remote road into the Medicine Bow Mountains in northeastern Jackson county passes through lots of lodgepole forest. But don't despair - there is some spruce-fir and aspen mixed in. Look for species such as Dusky Grouse, Evening Grosbeak, Red Crossbill, Clark's Nutcracker, and other mountain specialties. Along Pinkham Creek look in the willows for Lincoln's and Fox Sparrows, and Willow Flycatcher among other willow specialties.

Habitat: lodgepole, mixed conifer, willow carr
Directions: from the junction of SR-125 and SR-127, head north on SR-127 for 3.5 miles to CR 46. Turn right and follow this road as it enters the Routt National Forest. At the fork at 3.3 miles bear right to stay along Pinkham Creek, or left to continue up to the Larimer County line on the ridge of the Medicine Bows.
