CEDAR MOUNTAIN WILDFLOWERS
Escape the heat of the lower elevations as botanist Matt Ogburn takes us on a wildflower tour that explores the beauty of the annual Cedar Breaks Wildflower Festival. Through a series of short hikes we will cover most of the diversity and beauty of the wildflower array in the Monument. We’ll see Markagunt and Rydberg penstemon, columbine, gentian, and possibly prairie smoke and elephant head. We’ll hike the Alpine Pond trial for a chance to see the beautiful Parry Primrose. If time permits we’ll go just outside the Monument onto Brian Head Peak and check out the alpine environment there.
Limited to 10 participants.
