This small piece of private property is wooded with white oak and has views of the Mosier Plateau and Lyle Peak to the east. It is surrounded by the publicly managed lands of Coyote Wall and Catherine Creek, an area renowned for its hiking, mountain biking and wildflower photography. Currently, this property makes consistent management of the land for recreational and habitat purposes very difficult.
