Broad Canyon - San Miguel County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: (submitted by Andrew Spencer) This aptly named canyon along SR-141 in northern San Miguel County is covered in pinyon-juniper forest, and Gray Vireo and Scott's Oriole have both been seen here. To look for there, however, it is likely you will need to hike into the forest; public access is possible from SR-141 from about 1/4 to 2.5 miles south of the Montrose County line.

Habitat: Pinyon-Juniper Forest, Sagebrush
Directions: Broad Canyon is along SR-141 about 6 miles south of the junction with SR-145 near Naturita.
