The Red Hills is a region of 7,100 acres of public land located near the intersection of State Highways 49 and 120, just south of Chinese Camp in Tuolumne County.


The Red Hills are noticeably different from the surrounding countryside. The area supports a unique assemblage of plant species. Included among the thorny buckbrush and foothill pine is a rich variety of annual wildflowers, which put on a showy display every spring.
