Mosquito Ridge Road is a paved, two-way road, with many curves, and often traverses steep mountainsides. Mosquito Ridge is a narrow, high ridge in a land of deep canyons and steep mountainsides. Little Oak Flat appears almost out of place, out on the sharp end of Mosquito Ridge. The Placer County Big Trees Grove is the northernmost grove of giant sequoias, and contains only six mature trees. The next grove of giant sequoias is 50 miles to the south, at Calaveras Big Trees State Park. Specialty birds: Resident—Blue Grouse, Spotted Owl, Acorn Woodpecker. Summer—Flammulated Owl, Common Poorwill, Western Wood-Pewee, Hermit Warbler, Western Tanager, Black-headed Grosbeak. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, a detailed map, and helpful general information.
