I will be going the evening before (the 28th) and camping at Silver Springs Campground, site #54.

This is a new hike for me, Suzanne Gerber will be my co-leader.

We will be hiking at a leisurely pace, admiring the wildflowers and scenery. Our pace will be a bit faster than normal naturalist hikes, but still slow enough to snap photos and quickly identify the flowers.

You will need a National Parks pass.

Below is a map of the trail (out and back). It starts by going downhill, so save some energy for the return.
