KETCHUM – Join the Sawtooth Botanical Garden and the Idaho Native Plant Society on July 14 for a relatively short, high elevation wildflower hike to 4th of July Lake in the White Cloud Mountains. Participants will experience Idaho’s spectacular high mountain flora and see 30 species of wildflowers or more. The five-mile round trip hike to the 9,400 foot lake is rated easy to moderate.
The hike is part of the Sawtooth Botanical Garden’s popular summer wildflower walk series to some of our area’s most diverse and spectacular habitats.
Walks are free and happen rain or shine. Participants should bring appropriate outerwear, sturdy walking shoes, water, sunscreen, hat and lunch. These walks are appropriate for children age 7 years and older accompanied by an adult. Please leave pets at home.
Participants should meet at 8:30 a.m. at the Sawtooth Botanical Garden, four miles south of Ketchum, and will return by 4 p.m. Carpooling from SBG will be encouraged to help reduce the group’s environmental footprint.
