Horse Rock

Thursday, May 17, 2012
Leader: Lana Lindstrom
Hike: 4 miles, 538 ft (Easy)

Horse Rock is a Research Natural Area in the Coburg Hills owned and managed by the BLM. It's been in protected status since the mid-1990's due to its meadows and "dike" of lava.

Just two weeks earlier when I scouted this trip, there were absolutely no flowers in bloom. But today, we had a feast -- fawn lilies, shooting stars, calypso orchids, monkey flower, fleabane, and paintbrush were plentiful -- that's what warm, sunny weather brings! Plus we could see the mountains from Diamond Peak to Mt. Jefferson. No fauna, but plenty of flora. This is a short, albeit spectacular hike -- we were back in town by 2:00.
