Yesterday we headed to the Snowies to hike from the Little Laramie trailhead. Instead, we got distracted by wildflowers and ended up wandering around from trailhead to trailhead seeing what was blooming and where it was blooming.
So, instead of a trail report we’re bringing you the first ever Just Trails wildflower report.
Here’s what’s blooming right now in the Snowy Range.
Yes, if you’re looking to catch a glimpse of these beautiful yellow flowers in full bloom head to the Little Laramie Trailhead. There are a few at Corner Mountain, but not nearly as many as Little Laramie.
Brooklyn Lake Area / North Fork Trailhead / St. Alban’s Chapel
Lake Marie Falls/ Lake Marie
There still isn’t a whole lot blooming around Lake Marie, but you can catch a few wildflowers right where areas of recent snowmelt. It is neat seeing a patch of snow and flowers blooming at the same time. We think we saw the first glacier lily of the summer….
Barber Lake Road/ Green Rock/ Pine Campground
If you’re a fan of lupine I have two words for you: Pine Campground. That’s right they are blooming everywhere near this campground!
(p.s. if you’re curious. The road to Brooklyn Lake is still pretty snowy and it’ll be a few more weeks before we can get into Sugarloaf.
