The 728-acre Barnett Ranch property is located in central San Diego County, in the County of San Diego's (County's) Ramona Community Planning Area east of State Route (SR) 67 and south of SR 78. Barnett Ranch is partially within the San Vicente Corridor identified in the County's Multiple Species Conservation Program (MSCP) Subarea Plan (1997), and was purchased by the County in 2002 to be dedicated as part of the MSCP Preserve.

The Preserve consists of high value natural communities – southern coast live oak riparian forest, southern willow scrub, freshwater seep, riparian scrub, open water, open Engelmann oak woodland, coast live oak woodland, wildflower field, Diegan coastal sage scrub, coastal sage-chaparral scrub, southern mixed chaparral, and non-native grassland.  These vegetation communities support several sensitive species including southern California rufous-crowned sparrow, loggerhead shrike, white-tailed kite, and orange-throated whiptail.
