Pariette Wetlands


Elevation 4700 feet. Pariette is a lush oasis in the middle of the desert, and a birder`s paradise. The complex of freshwater ponds is richly inhabited by wetlands flora and fauna, and surrounded by marshes. The area is frequented by mallards, Canada geese, gadwalls, cinnamon teals, and pintails. Birdwatchers also spot herons, egrets, white-faced ibis, and American bittern within the wetland boundaries. As if that were not avian life enough, the area is also home to bald eagles, sandhill cranes, and peregrine falcons. Canoeing through the wetlands is a great way to quietly watch the birds.


From Myton, go west on US 40 about 1 mile to the Sand Wash-Green River access turnoff. Turn south and follow the paved road 1.7 miles to the Nine Mile-Sand Wash junction. Go left and follow signs for about 23 more miles.
