Ramirez Canyon 

Ramirez Canyon is a 2,880-acre watershed located between Kanan Dune Road and Escondido Canyon. Ramirez Creek is a significant Blue Line Stream with a thriving native riparian habitat lining the creek, and include many native tree species of oak and sycamore.

Ramirez Canyon Road, accessed at the Paradise Cove, is a private road that is gated at the Winding Way and Paradise Cove entrances.

The topography of the area ranges from the stream bed and flood plain area, to steep mountains. The canyon has a relatively small floor, bounded by relatively steep hills on both the East and West sides.

Flora and Fauna

Although development has disturbed native plant communities adjacent to the stream bed, the hillsides still contain coastal sage scrub. The flora of the upper, undeveloped watershed areas consist of abundant native plant communities are thriving, such as chaparral, coastal sage scrub and grassland habitat. These remain relatively undisturbed. The lower portions of the watershed also contain exotic annual grasslands. The abundance of vegetation and natural water course provides an ideal home to a number of species of wildlife, including deer, bobcats, raccoon, badger, gray fox, coyotes and cougar. Additionally, many species of birds inhabit the area, including hawks, eagles, owls and road runners, and there are a variety of snakes, lizards and frogs.
