It’s Impossible Not To Love This Breathtaking Wild Flower Trail In Northern California

There are plenty of beautiful trails in Northern California, but wildflower lovers flock to this one hike each year to witness the explosion of colors that blooms each summer. The typical wildflower season in the high Sierra happens from May through June, but with the long winter, many wildflowers will be blooming into August this year.

The Sagehen Trail near Truckee is a great place to view wildflowers in a stunning alpine meadow. You’ll want to go back year after year to see these blooms.

Here’s a video, just in case you didn’t get enough wildflowers in the photos above:
