This site encompasses the upper reaches of Goat Draw and is dominated by pinon-juniper vegetation. Two pinon branch demography study sites were located here, each with 49 labeled trees, in a small canyon which drains the Los Pinos Mountains to the east. Vegetation is characterized as a pinon/juniper woodland with occasional occurrences of Quercus turbinella, Yucca spp. and Opuntia spp. Portions of the bird community assessment and plant phenology studies were also located within Goat Draw.
