Directions:  From Provo take I-15 south to the Santaquin exit.  Turn right towards the town of Santaquin and drive 10.6 miles to Elberta going through the towns of Genola and Goshen on the way.  At the Elberta crossroad turn right and drive for .9 miles.  Immediately after crossing the railroad tracks turn left at 12800 West 14600 South on to a dirt road.  This is the beginning of the Elberta Slant Road. After driving 4.7 miles you will come to a wire gate.  Make sure to put it back up after going through it (if it was already up).  three miles later thate is another wire gate, which after you go through, returns you to the main road that goes to Eureka.  The entire road length is 7.6 miles.

Habitat:  In terms of habitat, the first 2.4 miles is grasslands which gradually blends in to sagebrush for about the next mile.  The next four miles is mostly pinyon-juniper habitat with scattered sagebrush.

Birds to look for are:  Horned Larks, Long-billed Curlew, Loggerhead Shrike, Black-throated Sparrow, Bewick's Wren, Rock Wren, Juniper Titmouse and Gray Flaycatcher.
