Brochure and User Map for the Griswold Hills:
Desert Hills of the San Joaquin Valley (17" x 17")
General Description: Within the steep and rugged Griswold Canyon, BLM land straddles both sides of the road. Visitor service improvements are now complete at the new day use facility, which features a parking area, a shade structure, picnic benches, a vault toilet, and a kiosk providing an interpretive panel, a map, and information about the area.
Wildlife/Wildflower Viewing: In the spring the hills are covered with mariposa lilies, Indian Paintbrush, poppies, and wild sage. There is also good habitat for the foothill yellow-legged frog and the western pond turtle.
Restrictions: Closed to motorized vehicles. No shooting within 150 yards of any developed area.
