Early spring wildflowers are beginning to emerge through the leaf litter on the forest floor. The best trail for the earliest wildflowers is the Clifty Creek trail near the dam. There are a few species already in bloom including: spring beauty, forkleaved toothwort, squirrel corn and early saxifrage. Birders should watch the lake for migrating waterfowl. A Louisiana waterthrush was also spotted near the waterfall off the lake trail on Friday.
Learn more about these and other early spring wildflowers at our first of the month hike on April 1st at 5:00P.M. The easy hike will last approximately one hour and will leave from the lodge lobby.
