Meet at the Bridgeport north parking lot.
The Buttermilk Bend trail is well known among locals for its spectacular explosion of wildflowers most springs. The display changes every week, so come more than once! Docents will identify the flowers and explain some of their natural history and traditional uses. Plan on 1.5 hours and 2 miles. No dogs.
From Grass Valley, west on Highway 20 to Penn Valley. Right (north) on Pleasant Valley Road, 8 miles to Bridgeport.
