Black bears and mountain lions inhabit this area. Many other wildlife species are common including birds of prey, mule deer and coyotes. White-tailed and mule deer are common. Red-tailed hawks, foxes and coyotes are sometimes seen.

Hop across rocks here to cross the stream.  There is a lot of flood debris scattered around here.
