Two short treks into floral forests
A single hike just won’t do with so many wildflowers blooming in the woods.

put you in the middle of a redwood rhododendron wonderland almost as
soon as you get out of your car, and the second of which contains
enough plant diversity to be considered a “special botanical area.”
