Wildflowers of Horseshoe Ranch Wildlife Area

Come explore burned areas of the Horseshoe Ranch Wildlife Area with Sheri Hagwood from US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). The Horseshoe Ranch Wildlife Area is comprised of approximately 5,000 acres of USFWS property, supplemented by an additional 4,000 acres of BLM lands. Formerly a working cattle ranch, the terrain consists of rolling to steep hills of shrubs, oaks and conifers surrounding Scotch Creek and several of its tributaries. Come see how native flora has made a comeback on the ranch since parts of the area burned in the Klamathon Fire last summer. The trailhead has limited parking - meet Sheri at the gas station in Hornbrook, California at 9am, then it’s about a 30-minute carpool to the trailhead. There is day pass fee of $4.32 per person.
