WHITEHALL – In celebration of National Wildflower Week, Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park will host a guided wildflower hike on Saturday, May 8, at 11 a.m.

As the weather continues to warm and things start to look a bit greener, early flowers will begin to emerge. Visitors who join this guided hike can learn about plants on the Greer Gulch Trail, one of the most biodiverse and scenic areas of the park.

Beginning at the upper picnic area, the hike will last about one and a half to two hours and traverse 2 miles of trail, including some steep inclines, sunny slopes and plenty of flora. Participants should bring sturdy hiking shoes, clothes for a variety of weather and shade conditions, sunscreen, water, and a light snack.

Up to 15 people will be able to attend this guided hike, so sign up today. Admission costs $4 per person and will need to be paid for ahead of time. There are no refunds available after purchase.

Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park is about 7 miles southeast of Cardwell along Montana Highway 2.

To reserve your spot or for more information, call the park at 406-287-3541 or email Emily at Emily.Dickerson@mt.gov if you have any questions.
