It’s Impossible Not To Love This Breathtaking Wild Flower Trail In Idaho
It’s a phenomenon you have to see to believe.
Idaho is downright gorgeous in the spring, and this winter’s intense weather is causing the landscape to explode with some fabulously colorful rewards just in time for spring—and there are plenty of places you’ll want to explore. While our fabulous wildflower displays are often overlooked by out-of-staters, natives and locals alike know the vibrant beauty that our mountainsides and meadows hold! True pinks, purples, blues, yellows…nearly every color of the rainbow makes its appearance in awe-inspiring displays that range from simple, tiny blossoms to entire fields of bouquet-worthy blooms.
The US Forest Service lists over a dozen known wildflower havens, some of which we’ve compiled here for the ultimate spring adventure and photo session – with a few local tips thrown in. Of course, we suggest you bring a wildflower guidebook as there are more varieties than you can imagine! And, in honor of National Wildflower Week, now is the perfect time to make the trip. Here’s a Google Map to get you started!
