Peck Ranch Conservation Area

Stegall Mt. Igneous Glade
Stegall Mt. Oak/Pine Forest
Bare Rock Glade
Plum Spring

When I first saw at Peck Ranch on a map, it looked like a big, scary place. Not.

Peck straddles the geological column between volcanic-igneous-rocks and early Cambrian, sedimentary rocks

An oak forest, fronted with grass, wraps around an igneous glade near the top of Stegall Mountain.

Near its base an oak/pine forest takes root in sands soil, derived from the Roubidoux Formation.

The Gasconade Formation supports Bare Rock Glade and an Oak/Pine forest at its crown.

Plum Spring spills into Mill Creek, where it seems through cracks in the Gasconade rocks underground and emerges in Mill Spring, several miles away.
