The varied elevations and aspects of Eight Dollar Mountain support outstanding examples of several serpentine soil communities and the heaviest concentration of rare plants in Oregon, including Waldo gentian, large-flowered rush-lily, western senecio, Oregon willow-herb and Howell's mariposa-lily. The preserve also contains western azalea thickets, chaparral and Jeffery pine forest, as well as bogs dominated by the carnivorous California pitcher plant and a tufted hairgrass wet meadow.
The Nature Conservancy's preserve on the east side of the mountain can be accessed by turning west onto Gold Canyon Road, about 2.5 miles south of Selma off Highway 199. Follow the road for 0.3 mile, and park in the grass where the road T's (also look for a sign marked #622). An old road leads up the hill... hike up this old road to the preserve.
