Angelo Coast Range Reserve ▲
Sagehorn Ranch is 16 km due south of Angelo Reserve. It was picked because it is located in a very different rock type than the Angelo Reserve. Sagehorn is on Central Belt melange, while Angelo is on Coast Belt argillite and greywacke. It encompasses two watersheds, those of Dry Creek and Hank Creek. Both drain into Dutch Henry Creek, which is off-property. Both become intermittent during the dry season and are extremely flashy during winter.
