Battle Mountain Forest State Scenic Corridor — located on U.S. 395 nine miles north of Ukiah — was purchased to protect the forest of ponderosa pine, larch, Douglas fir and spruce. It provides prime habitat for all kinds of wildlife. The name commemorates one of the last battles between native Americans and settlers in eastern Oregon.

Pygmy and Saw-whet Owls, Hairy, Black-backed, and Pileated Woodpeckers, Williamson's and Red-naped Sapsuckers, Mt. and Western Bluebirds as they are all found in this mountain terrain.
