From Arlington, travel south on Hwy 19 for two miles to Four Mile Road. Take Four Mile Road for 5 miles and look for Eight Mile Canyon Road. Turn south on Eight Mile and explore the canyon. For a little more adventure, return to Four Mile Road and cross it heading north on the dirt road extension of Eight Mile Canyon Road. This will take you to Willow Creek and a nice riparian area.


Habitat and Birds

Extensive tall sage should produce some sage species. Look for Loggerhead Shrike, Say’s Phoebe, Lark Sparrow, Western Meadowlark. This road is a prime Grasshopper Sparrow area. Burrowing Owl has not been found here but the habitat looks good.
