Rough and Ready Botanical Wayside

Description:

This is a unique botanical area along Rough and Ready Creek. It harbors a multitude of rare or special-status plants endemic to the serpentine soils of the Siskiyou Mountains. The area has been a popular wildflower-watching spot for decades, and plant species are actively evolving here. The impetus to protect the area was provided by the Illinois Valley Garden Club in 1937.

Directions:

Drive south on Highway 199 from Grants Pass and proceed past Cave Junction. Approximately 4.5 miles south of Cave Junction, turn right on to the Rough and Ready Wayside Parking Area (FS 4201). The trailhead is located on the side opposite the highway. There are eight parking spaces at the wayside.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
