The Trail Plant Checklist


See The Flora of the Pacific Crest Trail: Overview for an Introduction to these plant checklists, and B. The San Ysidro and San Jacinto Mountains for an Introduction to this section.

This is a short flat hike that traverses an alluvial fan at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains and crosses the basin of San Gorgonio pass. This low-elevation Colorado Desert is missing a number of its signature plants, and has a major impact from non-native plants. It still contains a high diversity of plants, especially annuals which at this time were just beginning to go into peak bloom.
