Best Wildflower Hikes Washington offers 50 hikes from Washington's ocean beaches to its high alpine terrain and the lowlands in between. Wildflowers reveal their glory only once a year, and this guidebook will tell you where and when you're most likely to find them. Included wildflowers range from the ephemeral (thus rarely seen) Lewisa Tweedyi to common trilliums. You'll enjoy hikes through meadow flowers (from Sitka Valerian to Columbine), flowers of the forest (from Pink Pyrola to Wild Ginger), and plants and flowers you'll see on beach trails.

The guidebook includes sidebars on flower habitat and color maps and photos illustrate each hike. A separate section presents in-depth profiles of 50 flowers, including common and Latin botanical names, distinguishing features, where they are commonly found, conditions in which they thrive, accompanying vegetation, their growth and propagation habits, and historical uses (culinary, medicinal, etc.).
