Redwood National Park & California State Parks

Fees: none

Activity: driving + hiking

Elevation: 100'-532'

Notes: There aren't a LOT of wildflowers under the redwoods, but the red bead lilies (Clintonia andrewsii) are worth a detour if you're in the area in May or June. You may have to stop at a trailhead and walk into the forest to find them, though, because everything next to the road is covered in dust.

Peak wildflower bloom at Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park is typically from early May through mid-June, but there may be some flowers blooming from mid-April until the end of June.*

Featured plants: Clintonia andrewsiana
