Quick Links

Mescal Wildlife Sanctuary is uniquely located at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains and one must search carefully to find it, but the benefits abound with interesting, unique and abundant diversity of plants and wildlife.  Here you will find a stunning blending of Joshua Tree Woodland and Juniper Woodland.  This Sanctuary is also home to the largest Silver Cholla cactus of all the Sanctuaries.  A Silver Cholla backlit by the sun is a sight to behold, every last spine captures the sunlight giving them a deceptively angelic glow.  The impressive annual wildflowers in the spring offer visitors from hikers, to painters and photographers a creative canvas for capturing beautiful images of nature!
