Wildflower hike on the Big Bluestem trail!

This hidden gem is simply the best wildflower hike in Boulder County in the early spring!  We will hike a 4 mile loop on easy terrain to explore the incredible spring wildflowers that abound here! We'll pass through several micro-ecosystems that each hold their own beauty and their own selection of wildflowers!  We may find: wild irises, golden banner, pasqueflower, mouse-eared chickweed, shootingstars, mariposa lilies, and much more!  Another exciting thing about hiking in this area in the spring- there are lots of frogs in the wetlands!!!! Join us!

Let's go see what new flowers blooming!

There is no charge for this meetup, but I would appreciate a donation of $10-20 per person. That allows me to continue offering these outings!  Thanks!

PS. please bring a headlamp in case we get back a bit after dark! And, bring warm layers too!

    Great meetup! Thank you, Lauren, for sharing your knowledge and love for our natural world! I learned so many new flower names and confirmed that I knew more than I thought, as well!

    Thanks for responding on this. I have to walk my dog
    after work as he's been sitting inside for 8 hours.
    So I will have to pass on todays hike. However, I look forward to going on a dog friendly after work hike.

    Are well behaved leashed dogs welcome?

    June 4, 2014

    • Lauren K.

      no, I'm sorry. I occasionally have dog friendly outings but they can be distracting when I'm teaching. Plus, I've had dogs come (in the early days of this meetup) and it didn't go well. I have dogs too, so definitely stay tuned for dog friendly outings!

    I will be a bit late for this meetup. Will you be easy to find on the trail?

    • Lauren K.

      Yes- going on the big bluestem trail first- down the dirt residential road from the trailhead. Call if you have trouble-[masked] :)
