Wildflower Walk is a 3-hike series (thought you don't have to come to all of them of course!) on some of our popular core trails is for those who are interested in woody and herbaceous flowering plant identification. Great for all ages and skill levels! This will be a slow paced hike of moderate difficult, on the East lake trail, and dogs are welcome to join in (though they must be cleaned up after!). The Wildflower Walk series is led by Chris Schiralli, and it's always a popular guided hike!
