Cottonwood Guest Ranch

 Birding & Wildlife 

Cottonwood Ranch resides in the Great Basin at the foot of the Jarbidge Mountains and is one of the least traveled designated wilderness areas in the United States.  

A trip up into the mountains will produce dozens of birds, with over 50 species possible in a short day.
— Peter Kaestner, Guinness World Record holder in Ornothology

Whether it's just a weekend stay or a week-long adventure, there are hundreds of species of birds & animals to discover and observe at the ranch and beyond.
