Most streams, with the exception of Pine Creek, are dry for parts of the year. Vegetation is mostly chamise chaparral and scrub oak with riparian and oak woodland vegetation in stream bottoms and benches. Rainbow and bass are found in Pine Creek.

Map Detail

Most maps in the Trail Finder are from a high level to provide an overview of each area.
Maps labeled as "High Res" are intended to show the high level of detail for the area but they're often unusable because of the overwhelming amount of information.
The GPS map progressively increases detail as you zoom in to prevent information overload.
