Spring Wildflowers Walk
May 5 | 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
One of the best places to observe truly spectacular flower displays is on the Devil’s Staircase trail (a part of the Ice Age Trail) that runs through Riverside Park. On this walk, you will be able to see entire hillsides covered with the blooms of Dutchman’s breeches, hepaticas, violets, spring beauty, wild ginger and anemones.
After an initial steep climb up a short staircase, the trail runs across slopes adjacent to the Rock River. Trail conditions are good and the hiking difficulty is moderate; a hiking stick is recommended for those who have balance issues.
This hike is co-sponsored by the Friends of Riverside Park and the Rock County Conservationists.
Meet at the far north parking lot of Janesville’s Riverside Park near the shelter next to the Devil’s Staircase trail.
