Plant Checklist for PCT Trail Segments, San Bernardino Mountains

This checklist gives the species in traditional family order that were observed for trail segments C4, C5 and C7. Only taxa fairly confidently identified to the species level are included.

See also the individual plant trail guides with species in order encountered along the trail: C4- Rainbow Road to road 2N01; C5- Road 2N01 to Highway 18; and C7- Van Dusen road 3N09 to road 3N14.

The number in each column is the sequence number for each taxon in that plant trail guide. Species with low numbers were the first encountered on each trail, and are likely to be the more abundant species. For example, Abies concolor has single-digit numbers in C5 and C7, and is an abundant widespread species in those trail segments. But this species was #39 in segment C4, indicating that it was absent in the first part of that segment.
