In the course of 24 hours, the Hepatica and White Trillium have pushed back the oak leaf mulch and bloom abundantly on the sheltered river slopes of the Lost Garden and Buck Shroth trails.

No sign seen of the Dutchmen or Bloodroot, but certainly won’t be long.
Do take the time for even a short walk to the river bluffs and slopes on the Buck Schroth trail.IMG_2281 This is always an accessible trail and hikable after a rain.

Even a day makes a difference in the wildflower season. Get your boots on and enjoy The Park.
