What’s bright yellow, has only one foot, and more teeth than a shark? Learn the answer to this riddle as you hike along the Betsy Crowder and Meadow Trails. Docents Ann Reisenauer and Mary Bernstein will help you spot milkmaids, hound’s tongue, and other early spring wildflowers. Perhaps a newt or banana slug will cross your path as you climb a short way up the Hamms Gulch Trail before returning to your car on the Spring Ridge Trail. Children who are capable of hiking 4 miles of gentle hills are welcome.
