A unique part of this hike was the mile or so walk to get to the trailhead. We had to park in the middle of the town because visitors are not allowed to park in the residential neighborhoods. A little stream runs through town on the way to the trail head, providing us with a very different flora than when we started climbing up in elevation. We saw tansy mustard, bee plant, all sorts of berries, wild rose, various grains, and more. On the mountain we saw wild strawberries, juniper, and many plants that were familiar from our other hikes.
