From this property one has extensive views of Crowley Lake, the Long Valley, and the Benton Range to the east. To the west one looks upon the steep slopes of the Eastern Sierra Nevada.
Vegetation consists primarily sagebrush scrub and scattered pinyon pines, mountain mahogany, Jeffrey pines, and Sierra juniper. The southeast corner of the property holds a small meadow crossed by a year-around creek.
This preserve was created to protect habitat for the migration of the Round Valley Mule Deer Herd. These are best observed in spring and fall as they pass through between their lower elevation winter range and higher summer range in the mountains.
Best Time for Viewing: Fall through Spring
Best Months and Seasons for Viewing: September - June
