Oat Hill Mine Trail

MacNab cypress (Cupressus macnabiana) has foliage in dense, short flat sprays and bright glaucous (powdery) gray-green leaves, with a strong spicy-resinous scent. The leaves are scale-like with a conspicuous white resin gland on the center of each leaf. (MacNab foliage is unlike most other California cypresses that do not have flattened sprays or white resin glands.)
