This BLM managed area is a decent little backwater nature observatory/conservancy area that is easily accessible. It does burn from time to time due to wildfire, but is currently in good shape.

This is an area that a local group made into a nice place to observe the wildlife, relax, have picnics and fish. There is a small pond/lake, some picnic shelters and a very nice trail with the occasion bench and placards. There is no swimming...More
