Flora of Sawmill Road / Stone Creek Trail Area of Dark Canyon, San Jacinto Mountains

See Information about the order in which the species are presented, and the links from the Scientific Name and Common Name.

This flora comes from three surveys of the Stone Creek Trail and Sawmill Road, augmented by species found on the 7 Pines and Marion Mountain Trails, and vouchers from the Dark Canyon Area. If we ever survey this area in prime time, we'll eventually remove the additional species from those augmentations.

The column #Pls is the number of plants seen in a survey of the Sawmill Road on 28 August 2014 and the Stone Creek Trail / Lower Sawmill Road on 23 August 2014. Both surveys were done by Tom Chester, Dave Stith and Adrienne Ballwey. The yellow pine counts were updated from a survey on 21 September 2014 by Tom Chester, Adrienne Ballwey and Bob Smith.
