Location

Take the Todd Lake turn off from the Cascade Lakes Highway. Go about 4 miles down FS 370 past the trailhead. The entire road is excellent and continues to Three Creeks Lake. A high clearance vehicle is required and 4-Wheel drive if the entire road is attempted. This is a summer birding area only. You may return to the trailhead and hike to Brokentop but this steep trail is not for the faint of heart and should be researched before attempting. Check here for details.

Habitat and Birds

High elevation forest. Boreal Owls are heard here mostly in October before the area is closed by snow. The 370 Rd is good for Black-backed Woodpeckers feeding on the lodge pole pines. There is an access road to the Broken Top trail head and a possibility for Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch.
