The first step in the enjoyment and appreciation of wildflowers is going out to see them where they grow. The Hidden Basin Wildflower Trail leads through a beautiful area of public land that is rich in flower varieties.
Thirty-eight small metal signs along the half-mile trail identify trees, shrubs and flowers. Peak viewing season for wildflowers is July and August, though you will find early-bloomers in June and a few hardy species flowering into September. Please do NOT pick the wildflowers.
