At the southwestern end of the Kantishna Hills, the rounded ridges of this unit are the last high ground before the expanse of lowland spruce forest that is common in the western portions of the park. The hillsides and stream bottoms that surround the open ridge tops are often covered with thick stands of alder and willow. The area has a significant gold mining history so old roads, equipment, trails and landscape disturbance are still visible.
