Where To Find Wildflowers In California Through The Summer


After more than five years of drought, Northern California experienced the wettest season on record this past winter.

The abundance of rain brought the "Super Bloom." Wildflowers can be found all over the region in valleys, canyons and deserts.

The "Super Bloom" is expected to last through the summer, depending on the area. Wildflowers will survive longer in higher elevations like the High Sierra. Most flowers are gone in desert areas in Central and Southern California. 

Here are some areas where you can still find wildflowers:

Sierra Foothills - mid-March through late April 
  • Hite Cove Trail
  • Savage's Trading Post
  • South Yuba River State Park
San Francisco Bay Area - Late April to mid-June
  • Point Reyes National Seashore
  • Russian Ridge Preserve
High Sierra - June and July
  • Sagehen Creek Trail
  • Carson Pass Trail
Shasta Cascade - Starts in mid-July
  • Lassen Volcanic National Park
  • Mill Creek Falls Trail
