Cottonwood Canyon

This route travels west from the Arroyo Seco, providing an unimpeded wildlife corridor for animals moving into the San Rafael Hills and to the Verdugo Mountains beyond. Mammals of the area expected to use this corridor include mule deer, mountain lion, bobcat, coyote, gray fox, black bear, raccoon, striped skunk, Virginia opossum, long-tailed weasel, Audubon’s cottontail rabbit, California ground squirrel, fox squirrel, western gray squirrel, Merriam’s chipmunk and numerous rodents. It has an impressive birding habitat, for both year-round living space and migration.
