Since it is Spring Break week, we decided to head over to Cathedral Hills Park and see all the wildflowers that are making their Spring Break -- literally millions!!!
|Time to get out and hike!|
|A clump of Indian Warriors|
We decided to hike two routes that have been our favorites over the last few years, so the hikes were not new, but the sight of all the wildflowers was amazing!
|One viewpoint on the W trail. Snow capped mountains in background|
|Poison Oak was plentiful along trails at Cathedral Hills Park|
After completing this first hike (3.4 miles), we took a break back at the trailhead to get refueled. The park has picnic benches/tables available as well as benches out on the trails where you can sit down, take a break, and enjoy the beauty and quiet.
|Trail signs are everywhere and easy to follow.|
|View of Outback trail.|
|One of the flooded areas on the Ponderosa trail|
|View of the hills along the trail|
Combined, the hikes took us a total of 3 hours to complete, but the views and wildflowers were worth it. We would recommend either loop if you want to see wildflowers, but there are also many other trail combinations you can hike that include shorter routes. Regardless, get out and see the wildflowers wherever you are.
