Forest Wildflower Hike

Join NC Forest Rangers for a moderate, ¾ mile hike to observe and identify early spring wildflowers. Call now (828 692-0100) or email ( to reserve your spot! You MUST SIGN UP for this program to participate. Hiking through this diverse forest ecosystem we are likely to see plenty of Oconee Bells, Trout Lilies, Bloodroot and more! The program is limited to 20 people but if there is enough interest another hike may be offered. We will meet near the main kiosk in the parking lot at 10am. We recommend bringing comfortable shoes, a water bottle, a camera, and a wildflower field guide if you have one. The guided hike is set to end at 12pm but there is much more at Holmes Educational State Forest to explore on your own time! We offer hiking trails, picnic areas, and a variety of educational exhibits. NCEE and CEU credit available upon request.
