Wildflower Hike


April through May

To help walkers enjoy spring wildflowers, the Friends of Richfield Heritage Preserve are offering a do-it-yourself smart phone guided hike in the Richfield Heritage Preserve. The two-mile loop starts south of the Lodge and follows the Buckeye Trail through the park.

Jennifer Windus, retired ecologist from the Ohio Division of Natural Areas and Preserves, designed the hike. RHP’s spring ephemerals appear as the weather warms, but not all at once, so return often to catch successive displays.

Download the hiking guide at friendsofrhp.org to get the best view of the preserve’s spring ephemerals. Or, follow informative signs that the Friends will place at intervals along the trail. ∞
