This will be an easy-to-moderate hike, led by certified CA Naturalist John Roos, to view the many mid-season wildflowers blooming at 7700’ south of Lake Tahoe near Hope Valley. Lots of butterflies too! We start at the marshy edges of Grass Lake, through shady white fir and aspen groves, up into the open pine and juniper forest with sneak views of Hope Valley. Interesting geology too.

What to bring: Hat and sunscreen, water, snacks, insect repellant, sturdy hiking shoes, iPhone or camera for taking photos ,hand lens, loupe, or small magnifier, Binoculars (for those bird watchers), small notepad or journal, field guide for the Tahoe/Sierra area.

Parking is somewhat limited, so carpooling is recommended.

Meet at the Luther Pass Trail Trail Head, at the South End of Grass Lake on Hwy 89, (just before you cross into Alpine County and head down to Hope Valley).
