Walk among the carnivores”the carnivorous California pitcher plant (Darlingtonia californica), that is. The 1/8 mile Eight Dollar Mountain Interpretive Boardwalk provides an easy walk through towering pines to view one of southern Oregon™s most unique botanical features, Darlingtonia fens (wetlands). Educational panels along the boardwalk provide information about the California pitcher plant, its wet serpentine habitat, and the drier surrounding slopes. A moderate hike along the 1-mile Jeffrey Pine Loop Trail passes through serpentine habitats, follows an historic mining ditch, and offers views of the Illinois River.
