Buckeye Subbasin Overview
The Buckeye Subbasin is bounded to the north by the Rockpile Subbasin and to the south by the
Wheatfield Subbasin. It encompasses 40.3 square miles of private land used primarily for timber
production, grazing, and small vineyards. It contains more moderate terrain compared to the North Fork
and Rockpile subbasins. About 53 percent of the subbasin falls into the high and very high categories for
landslide potential. There are 90 miles of “blue line” streams, and three major tributaries: Flat Ridge,
Grasshopper, and Osser creeks.
