We saw Diane Richards post on Facebook titled I love to chase wildflowers and thought we would share her spring road trip itinerary with you.
I love to chase wildflowers and I also admire an incredible mass garden bloom, too. So I have multiple favorite Spring road trip destinations, depending on the timing and what I’m in the mood for.Diane Richards
North Table Mountain
The North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve is a nature reserve of 3,315 acres located three miles north of Oroville, in Butte County, northern California. The land was acquired by the state in October, 1993.
Best of both my favorites – wildflowers and waterfalls!
Buttermilk Bend Trail
The Buttermilk bend trail is well known among locals for its spectacular explosion of wildflowers most springs. The display changes every week, so come more than once! March 10th, 2018 – May 13th, 2018 Docents will identify the flowers and explain some of their natural history and traditional uses.
After visiting the incredile tulip bloom at Crystal Hermitage drive down to South Yuba State Park at Bridgeport to hike the Buttermilk Bend to see the wildflower bloom and the incredible South Yuba River. Also, to see the covered bridge.
Kortum Trail is a 8.9 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Occidental, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels.
Anytime is an incredible time to drive to Bodega Bay and hike the Kortum Trail, then refuel at Spud Point Crab Co. with some fresh crab or clam chowder.
