Pack a picnic lunch and join us for a leisurely hike at Rock Castle Gorge as we search for wildflowers. Some rare plants we may see include: Gray's lily, bog twayblade, mountain sandwort, and rattlesnake root, among others. We also expect to see the usual spring suspects: trilliums, lady slippers, Solomon's seal, bloodroot, saxifrage, and many more.
