North Table Mt. Wildflowers 3/19/16 – updated

Where to photograph in California – Yahoo Groups (Calphoto) has two reports on North Table Mt.

 goldfields, poppies, and lupine are off to a good start in some places.

March 17 & 18 and saw nice displays of Blue Dicks, Foothill & Frying Pan poppies, Popcorn Flower, Red Maids, Owl & White-tipped Clover, Yellow Carpet, Larkspur, Bird’s-eye Gilea, Meadowfoam and Goldfield. Some areas haven’t begun blooming yet so it should be even fuller in the next week or two. Waterfalls are full, of course.

Wildflower Tours at North Table Mt.

California Department of Fish and Wildlife offer guided public hiking tours of North Table Mountain March through April, 10:00 a.m. – noon and 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. Tour leaders will talk about the area’s geology, vernal pools, waterfalls, wildflowers and wildlife.

The hike lasts about two hours, with a distance of 2 to 2.5 miles; and involves hiking without established trails, over irregular terrain, and through several ravines. Stream crossings and somewhat difficult hill climbing are required. Streams (depending on the frequency of rain) are often full earlier in the season, making crossings more challenging. Please carefully assess your physical abilities before you register. For more information and to register go to Wildflower Tours at North Table Mountain
