Late Spring Nature Hike

This Late Spring Wildflower Hike marks the final in our series of guided spring wildflower hikes. The spring wildflower season is winding down but we will find an array of beautiful wildflowers that bloom at this time of year into summer. In fact, lingering spring bloomers team up with the late bloomers to make this a dazzling time of year to view wildflowers. You can expect to see Brodiaea, Crimson Columbine, native honeysuckle, several varieties of Clarkia, Ithuriel's Spear, Ookow, Yarrow and Fairy Lanterns. We will hike through mixed evergreens and redwoods winding down to the Historic Orchard. From there we will continue to beautiful Fern Lake, located on adjacent property, where we should see plenty of dragonflies, butterflies and waterfowl. After exploring this area abundant with life, we will return up the Asbury Creek Trail and make our way back to the parking lot. What a delightful way to spend the day! Park naturalists John Lynch and Deborah Large will engage you with the wonders of the season on this moderately difficult 7.5 mile hike.

When: Saturday, May 26, 2018 10 am to 3:00 pm.
