Red Hills Recreation Management Area

Description:

The Red Hills is a region of 7,100 acres of public land located just south of the historic town of Chinese Camp in Tuolumne County. The Red Hills are noticeably different from the surrounding countryside. The serpentine-based soils in the area support a unique assemblage of plant species. Included among the thorny buckbrush and scraggly foothill pine is a rich variety of annual wildflowers, which put on a showy display every spring. The endangered bald eagle is a winter resident of the area.

Directions:

From Sonora, take State Highway 49 south 15 miles to Chinese Camp, then drive south on Red Hills Road for 1/2 mile.
