River Walkway in Helper

River Walkway    by Eric Huish    ŠEric Huish

Description:  Helper has a wonderful paved walkway stretching for a mile of so along the Price River. This walkway winds through the riparian habitat between the Highway 6 and Helper. The trees block some of the road noise enabling singing birds to be heard.   (description by Robin Tuck)

Location:  Access is by turning east off Highway 6 onto Helper Main Street (State Highway 157) and bend immediately to the south. After two blocks, angle west (right) onto First Street where parking for 6 cars can be found. Restrooms are about a block south. The paved walkway extends both north and south from the parking lot. 

Sightings:  Site visited March 18, 2000 at 4:00 pm. We saw Cassin's Finch, Dark-eyed Junco, Song Sparrow, Lincoln Sparrow, American Robin, American Dipper and House Sparrow.
