Exploring Rattlesnake Gulch

Sunday 7:30 AM-11:30 AM
Trip# 425: Exploring Rattlesnake Gulch
Description: This unique area, the oldest known gold mining site in the Eastern Sierra, is a quiet, dramatic place unlike any other location in the Mono Basin. A riparian habitat of willow and aspen holds typical breeding species such as Calliope Hummingbird, MacGillivray's Warbler, and Green-tailed Towhee. Adjacent sagebrush and bitterbrush habitat offers a different group of birds. Rocky expanses and unlimited vistas provide good raptor watching. This is a fun and scenic area with lots of great boulders and old cabins that will interest not only birders, but photographers as well. (est. driving miles: 25; hiking difficulty: easy to moderate)
