LeBarron Point

LeBarron Point Road   by Staff Photographer  ©utahbirds.org

On the east side of the south end of Utah Lake, west of West Mountain, LeBarron Point sticks out into the lake, N 40 02.972' W 111 52.319. The road to the point passes through a large group of trees that are a migrant trap in the spring and fall for migrating warblers and often have nesting raptors. A Great Horned Owl is commonly seen here. The road winds down to a point where it crosses a marsh where Marsh Wren, Savannah Sparrow, Common Yellowthroat, Sora and Virginia Rail are found. Access is from Lincoln Beach Road, turning west toward the lake at the edge of the Genola orchards where the road crosses a cattle guard. Near here, the west side of West Mountain often has Chukar on the rocky outcrops. A good road to drive up to find Chukar is 1.1 miles north of the LeBarron turn-off at N 40º 03.892' W 111º 51.337'. Drive to the top, then listen, Chukar are noisy. ~ Robin Tuck
