Wildflower Walk 11 AM MDT In celebration of National Wildflower Week, Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park will be hosting a $4 guided wildflower hike on May 8th. As the weather continues to warm and things begin to look a bit greener, early flowers will begin to emerge. Learn about and make friends with the plants of the Greer Gulch Trail as you take the scenic route through one of the most biodiverse areas of the park!


The group will meet at the main (lower) visitor center before driving to the trailhead. The hike will last approximately 1.5-2 hours and traverse 2 miles worth of trail- including some steep inclines, sunny slopes, and plenty of flora. Participants should bring sturdy hiking shoes, long pants, clothes for a variety of weather/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. To reserve your spot or for more information, call the park at (406) 287-3541. Please email Emily at Emily.Dickerson@mt.gov if you have any questions. There are no refunds available after purchase. (Note that if the quick info at the top of the event page says "Price: Free" this is due to a Facebook policy dealing with Eventbrite and is a setting we cannot change, the event is NOT free.)
