Mineral Mountains

Mineral Mountains from Milford Flat    by Merrill Webb    ©Merrill Webb

Directions: From Beaver drive west on State Route #21 to Milford which is a total of 31 miles. Stay on this same road as it curves north through Milford.  Four miles north of Milford look for the road going east to the Blundell Geothermal Plant. After driving nine miles there is a junction. Continue on east toward the mountains. 

Description: To access this area a high-clearance vehicle is recommended because the road is not paved and is subject to flooding.  This is an extensive mountainous area with oak and mountain mahogany vegetation. It burned really badly (2007)during the Milford Flat fire, but the vegetation is recovering and the birds are returning.  Return back to State Route #21 the same route.

Birds:  Typical birds are Scrub Jay, Raven, Red-tail Hawk, Black-capped Chickadee, Chipping Sparrow, and Blue-gray Gnatcatcher,etc. during breeding season. During the summer even Black-throated Sparrow can be found in higher elevations.
