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.
