********Notice************ There will be controlled pile buring at New River between November 14-30, 2013. Running parallel to the Pacific Ocean for nine miles, this coastal river is separated from the ocean by only a thin foredune of sand. Many rare birds, animals, and plants depend on New River's estuary, forest, meadow, wetland, and shrub habitat for survival. Dedicated almost exclusively to Watchable Wildlife, the area remains secluded and primitive, providing nature enthusiasts with short, rustic, self-guided loop trails to view wildlife. There are four main access points to New River ACEC, Storm Ranch, Floras Lake, Lost Lake, and Four Mile.
