Getting to Greenlee County

Getting to Greenlee County is usually a long drive for most birders in Arizona.  In this section, basic directions are going to be provided for three of the more well known places people tend to visit in the county.  Those three places are the towns of Duncan and Clifton, as well as the unincorporated community of Hannagan Meadow.  For the sections on the birding areas on this guide, directions will often be based on these three towns/communities as base locations for directions.
