San Benito Mountain Research Natural Area Reviews & Ratings
Some of the most breathtaking views I've seen in California.
Great peace and tranquility.
This mountainous region contains many rare minerals, in including benitoite. the soil is poor with little nutrients and many heavy metals, so little vegetation grows here. It also contains asbestos, a poisonous natural substance, so it is closed.
Inside look at the National Forestry Land. Good sightseeing in this forest.
