The high point on the east part of the Unit is about 6700 feet and is on the east boundary. The elevation decreases towards the reservoir. This part is cut in the south by Taylor Hollow, 5700 feet to 6100 feet. Cottonwood Canyon ranging from 5800 feet to 6700 feet and Dip Hollow ranging from 6200 feet to 6300 feet cut the Unit. On the west part of the Unit, east of the reservoir, there is a ridge that ranges from Deadox, 8400 feet to 7700 feet in the north. Lowest elevations are 6600 feet to 7400 feet. Much of Monument Creek froms the southern boundary of the unit. Dry Pine Creek ranging from 6200 feet to 7200 feet is one of the major drainages cutting this part of the Unit. The most common elevation is 6300 feet but ranges from 5800 feet to 8300 feet with an elevation difference of 2500 feet.

More dominant in the north and south ends in almost equal proportions are Rocky Mountain Gambel Oak-Mixed Montane Shrubland (41) and Rocky Mountain Aspen Forest and Woodland (22). In a much more minor way patches of Rocky Mountain Montane Mesic Mixed Conifer Forest and Woodland (32), Inter-Mountain Basins Big Sagebrush Shrubland (48) and Inter-Mountain Basins Big Sagebrush Steppe (66) are distributed throughout the unit.
