The Red Hills Area of Critical Environmental Concern is a region of 7,100 acres of public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management just south of the historic town of Chinese Camp in Tuolumne County.
The Red Hills are noticeably different from the surrounding countryside. The natural serpentine in the area causes the plant assemblage to be limited to those species that are tolerant of such minerals. Included among the buckbrush and gray pine is a rich diversity of annual wildflowers that put on a showy display every spring. The endangered bald eagle is a winter resident of the area.
