Description: Swett Ranch is on the National Register of Historic Places as an example of an early pioneer homestead. Ponderosas and aspen surround the open meadows of the ranch. The ranch is open daily to the
public from 10 AM to 5 PM, from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Volunteers are on site to give interpretive tours or you may explore the ranch on your own. ~ Eric Huish

Directions: The road to Swett Ranch (FR 158) goes west from US 191, 1/2 mile past the intersection with  UT 44 that goes to Manila.  Turn from US 191 and go 1.5 miles to the ranch.

Birds: Lewis' Woodpecker.~ Eric Huish; Hairy Woodpecker, Mountain Bluebird and Mountain Chickadee ~ Keith Evans

Other: The volunteers keep a hummingbird feeder on the porch of the main house. Check the telephone poles and the dead tree in the open areas of the ranch for Lewis' Woodpeckers and make sure to walk the trail
behind the main house, past the meat house and root cellar, for buntings and warblers.  ~ Eric Huish
