The Park is awash in colors and textures. Wildflowers bloom abundantly throughout the Park. The wildflower season began early this year owing to the unseasonably warm temperatures in late February. On March 12th, Hepatica and Snow Trillium bloomed on the south facing slopes only to be covered in a three inch snowfall a few days later. After that snowfall, temperatures fell below zero over the course of the next three days. Despite the rough start to the season, the wildflowers are out in full force. Now is the time to ‘get your boots on and start hiking the Park.’
