There is a reason why Del Puerto Canyon is considered scenic. A quick drive from Patterson reveals the habitat that a variety of wildlife call home. The meandering creek that the tadpoles relish, Owl Rock, and Heritage Oaks are just a few notable spectacles. Catch it at the right time, and the variety of blossoms are watercolor in life. Geologists study the region for its rare vertical alignment glimpse to our Earth's core.
The natural beauty and rare geology of the canyon is to be preserved for generations to come.
