Stop 2 - Livestock Grazing

The Grassland provides pasture for approximately 5,000 head of cattle each year. The livestock are owned by local ranchers and graze from May 1 to October 31 under a permit with the Forest Service. Grazing is used as a tool to manipulate and manage vegetation conditions and composition. The corrals at this Stop are used during “roundup” of the cattle grazed on the Grassland and are available the rest of the year for use by visiting horseback riders and stock packers.

It is 1.2 miles to Stop 3.
