The road follows the Price River for about 3.5 miles across open desert before hugging the river and following it another 4 miles into the book cliffs at the canyon bottom. Eventually the road hits the river and you can either go north up Trail Canyon, or cross the river and go south on another dirt road. For birding purposes I suggest probably turning around here and heading back. The combination of habitats can make for a descent morning of birding with the sparsely vegetated desert hitting marsh and wetland along the river--and a riparian habitat with cottonwood and willow. As you hit the canyon the the desert turns to rocky hillsides, and cliffs bordering the riparian habitat of the river. To the south several hillsides have juniper woodlands as well. This area has been mostly ignored by birders and potentially could be a worthwhile stop along the way from Price to Green River.
This one really might be a gem in the desert. I've only stopped here twice on a whim to see what might be around. The open desert for the first couple of miles of road isn't overly productive int eh early spring. But things like SAY'S PHOEBE, ROCK WREN, and HORNED LARK can be found along the road with ease. MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRD are in the area, and notably BLACK-THROATED SPARROW can be found. The are along the river is probably best during the spring and fall but some interesting breeders might occur here. YELLOW WARBLER are probably the standard, but Yellow-breasted Chat, Blue Grosbeak, Willow Flycatcher, and other riparian specialists probably use the habitat in the canyon. The wetland areas along the river on the flats can attract waterfowl, and possibly waders, shorebirds, and other waterbirds. In the canyon look to the cliffs for CANYON WREN and WHITE-THROATED SWIFT. In the skies above TURKEY VULTURE and other raptors can probably be found regularly. This stop could end up being a great hot spot one day, it just needs some attention.
From the on ramp at Exit 243 on US-191/6 in Price head south on US-191 for 35.4 miles till you reach a dirt road and turn off on your left. Turn here and you are on Woodside Lower Price River Road which continues 7.7 miles into the Book Cliffs.
