Location

To reach this road travel west out of Mitchell for about a mile and turn north on Hwy 207. Take 207 for 17 miles to Sixshooter Rd.. Turn right and take this road for as long as you have time. You will probably have to return by the same route as a loop here is difficult.

Habitat and Birds

Richmond-Sixshooter Rd. has some interesting habitat along it, but it’s an unfriendly sort of place because of all the obnoxious signage. A Western Flycatcher was found once in the moist canyon where it goes through the Iron Mt. area. Clark’s Nutcracker, Red Crossbill, and Northern Goshawk have been seen here.
