Springtime Wildflower Walks

Edgewood’s serpentine grasslands are renowned throughout California for their lush wildflower carpets and rich biodiversity. You might see dozens of species of flowers on a single walk! Our free walks vary according to what’s in bloom—covering about 3 miles, at a moderate pace, with frequent stops. Heavy rain cancels hikes.

Groups of 10 or more

Groups of 10 or more should make a reservation. For group reservations, please email docent-coordinator@friendsofedgewood.org.

When

Walks are held every Saturday and Sunday, from early March through early June. Walks begin at 10:00 AM and end around 1:00 PM. The walks schedule for 2019 will be posted in February. You can also sign up for our newsletter to get information on wildflower walks.

Where to meet

Walks start from the Bill and Jean Lane Education Center at the main entrance off of Edgewood Road (red star on map) every weekend throughout the season.

On Saturdays in April, walks also start from the Clarkia Trailhead on Cañada Road (blue dot on map below).

Parking

Parking is limited.  Carpool when possible. Allow extra time to park. Use extreme caution if parking on the street. Wherever you park, do not leave valuables in your vehicle.

What to bring

Bring water, a hat, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and a snack if you wish. We don’t stop for lunch, but picnic tables are usually available after the walks in the picnic area.

Restrooms

Restrooms and water are available only at the Education Center and in the picnic area.
