The park protects a series of dry meadows at the top of a basalt cliff formation and the wetter meadows at its base, along with the interior Douglas fir forest. The dry, seasonally-wet, diverse meadows are extremely fragile.
Five red/blue-listed vascular plants are known to occur including red-listed Obscure Cryptantha ( Cryptantha ambigua ) and Needleleaved Navarretia ( Navarretia intertexta ) and blue-listed Northern Linanthus ( Linanthus septentrionalis ), False-mermaid ( Floerkea proserpinacoides ) and Awned Cyperus squarrosus.
Secondarily the park provides low-impact recreational opportunities and contains part of the regionally-significant 55 km long High Rim Trail.
