Many of the early spring wildflowers are currently in bloom now at Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park! On our first of the month hike yesterday we saw the following flowers in bloom on the park’s Clifty Creek Trail: Rue Anemone, Early Saxifrage, Cut-leaf toothwort, Dutchman’s Breeches, Quaker Ladies, Yellow Trout Lily, Bloodroot, and Violet sp. On the Indian Bluff trail we found more Early Saxifrage, Yellow Corydalis AKA Scrambled Eggs, and Pennywort. There are also small flowered bluets blooming in a variety of locations throughout the park. Small serviceberry trees were spotted in bloom on the cliff edges on the Indian Bluff trail, so they are blooming right on schedule.
Louisiana Waterthrushes were also spotted beside Clifty Creek.
This weekend the park is offering a moonlight canoe trip on Saturday night (you must register in advance) and Easter Eggcitement on Sunday April 5th.
