Directions: Drive up Spanish Fork Canyon and turn right at the junction with Highway 89 towards Thistle and Birdseye. After the Birdseye church take the third right (Nebo Creek) and drive 1.5 miles past the forest boundary fence and cattle guard to Page Fork. Turn left (south), ford the stream and go approximately 100 meters to the cattle guard.

Description: Vegetation is typical riparian with large cottonwoods, willows, and on the hillside just typical oak-maple habitat.

Birding:  The first mile can be covered by driving a vehicle; the road terminates at a trailhead which can be walked for as long as you want to go. On the way up to Page Fork turn-off a forest fire a couple of years ago left a lot of dead cottonwoods in the stream bottom. I found a Lewis' Woodpecker working those dead trees about three weeks ago.

Birds:  Birds you can expect are: Plumbeous Vireo. Song Sparrow, Orange-crowned Warbler, and MacGillivray's Warbler.
