Location

To reach Scholfield Road and the subsequent transfer station, take Hwy 38 east out of Reedsport. Travel about 2.2 miles from Hwy 101 and turn right onto Scholfield Road. The transfer station is only about .4 miles down this road. Since this site has changed from a dump to a transfer station, it has become less attractive to birds. Continue on Scholfield Road and bird for as long as you have time. This road winds its way up into the foothills of the coast range and can be pretty birdy. Walker Creek Road and Schofield Ridge Road are side trips that can be productive.
