Flora of Cedar Springs Trail and PCT South of Cedar Springs, San Jacinto Mountains

The Introduction for this page hasn't been written yet. The following gives some basic information about this checklist.

See:

An asterisk before the common name indicates a non-native species.

The family name is abbreviated to the first five characters in order to save space in the table rows.

The column with header CST gives the minimum number of plants, with a maximum value of 99 plants, seen on or near the Cedar Spring Trail, from the Trailhead on Morris Ranch Road to the PCT, from the union of all survey work on 30 May 2012 and earlier, with a few updates from 4, 13 and 17 May 2016. The main intent of this column is to indicate the species for which we found very few plants. An entry of OT in the CST column indicates a species found only off-trail, with no abundance estimate yet made.

The column with header PCT gives the minimum number of plants seen on or near the PCT on 30 May 2012, and 4, 13 and 17 May 2016, including two off-trail excursions north of the PCT. We've only covered the first 2.2 miles south of the Cedar Springs Trail junction. For a more complete flora of the entire PCT section from the Fobes Trail junction junction to SR74, a distance of 14 miles, see The Flora of the PCT B6, Highway 74 to Fobes Trail junction.
