Directions from the South:  Take the 12th Street exit (exit 344) of I-15 in the Ogden area and go west on Highway 39 to 6700 West and turn right (north).  Go 3 mile or so to the end of the road and you will be at the wetlands.
Directions from the North:  Take exit 349 of I-15 near Farr West and go west on Highway 134 into Plain City (3 or 4 miles).  Go west from Plain City on 2050 North a couple of miles until it "T's" into 1900 North and turn right (west). Go west about .2 miles to 6700 West and turn right (north).  Go north about a half mile to the end or the road and you will be at the wetlands.

Birding the area: From the trailhead you will see a hack tower to the northeast. Look for Peregrine Falcons on it. You can walk along the old railroad bed east or west.  If you go east there is a small pond about 1 mile that holds a fair amount of birds and waterfowl.  ~ Paul Merola

Birding along the way: On your way there, stop at the West Warren Cemetery on the corner 6700 West and 700 North. Northern Shrikes may be in the area and if you're lucky Short-eared Owls may be in a Russian Olive grove about 1/4 mile north of the cemetery on 700 North. ~ Paul Merola

Specialty Birds: Eastern Kingbird, Peregrine Falcon, Prairie Falcon ~ Paul Merola
