The “Treasures of the Boise Front” series of wildflower hikes is an introduction to a selection of public trails with the best diversity of native wildflowers throughout the Boise Front.
Enjoy spectacular mountain flowers and views along the Upper Dry Creek trail at the lower edge of the conifer forest, 2500 feet above the Boise Valley heat. In addition to penstemon and other showy “treasures”, we'll be looking for the inconspicuous but special treat of our native Alaska Rein Orchid.
The hikes include some “target” species or habitats that are a mile or more from the nearest trail head. Expect a steady pace to reach these goals and a 350 gradual elevation gain within the 2-3 hour time frame. Occasional stops are interspersed with to discuss other plants of particular interest and general natural history. Please, No dogs, on the hike!
**Pre-Registration is required. These walks are free to the public but have a maximum number of 20 participants each hiking series.**
