2016 Annual Wildflower Walks

Free and Open to the Public
 
You are invited to join a park ranger for a guided wildflower walk in Grandfather Mountain State Park this spring.  There is a walk for everyone – some are more challenging but some do not venture far from the parking lot.  Grandfather Mountain’s forest floor produces an amazing variety of wildflowers, which change from week to week, so join us throughout the season to experience the changes!

We will hike about two miles, round trip.  This section of the trail is easy with a couple of moderate climbs; it can be very muddy and slippery.  Dress for the weather, wear appropriate footwear, bring water and be prepared to be outside.
