Greenwood Road, which runs a residential loop off CO 96, is a public road through private land. It runs through some excellent Ponderosa Pine forest with Gambel Oak understory, and Narrowleaf Cottonwood along Hardscrabble Creek. Look for species such as Evening Grosbeak and Cassin’s Finch. A spur off this road (FR 388) passes through a good deal more of the same habitat, as well as a recent burn.
