Pisgah Trails - Celebrate Spring

Tuesday, March 21, 2017
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 5 miles, 1000 ft (Moderate)

Flowers were the signs of spring: spring beauty, fawn lily, trillium, baby blue eyes, camas, hound's tongue, Indian plum, wild iris, yellow wood violet, and snow queen. We heard and then spotted a horned owl on the South Boundary trail. We began our at the Baker flower garden and then followed the path along the river until we intersected with the South Boundary Trail that had the best flower show. Doreen led us up the steep not often used Trail 35 that connected with the main trail. Doreen also shared stories about the grouse flower (snow queen) and spring box. From the summit, we took took trail 1, 4, and 3 to loop around Swing Hill. The trip took around 2 hours and 45 minutes.

Members: Janet Jacobsen, Tommy Young, May Fogg, Brad Bennett, Dorene Steggell.
