Wildflower Walk to Focus on Greenhorn Flowers
Thursday, June 3, 2021


Greenhorn Gulch has been a flower lover’s oasis so far this spring with scads of big hearty bouquets of mountain bluebells, hundreds if not thousands of arrowleaf balsamroot lining the hills and a myriad of wild peonies, scarlet gilia, Oregon grape and other flowers.

The Idaho Native Plant Society will lead a wildflower hike around the Greenhorn Gulch Loop on Saturday, June 5.

Wildflower enthusiasts will meet at Hailey Park and Ride lot at Bullion and River streets at 8:45 a.m. that morning to depart at 9 a.m. for the Greenhorn trailhead. Parking at Greenhorn is scarce so wildflower walkers are asked to mask up to carpool to the site.

The two-mile round trip hike is rated moderate in difficulty with some elevation gain and rocky narrow stretches often frequented by mountain bikers


  • On June 26, the INPS will offer a walk, as opposed to a hike, at the Billy’s Bridge/Prairie Creek area 17 miles north of Ketchum.The walk will begin in the parking area of the Prairie Campground area and then continue to nearby areas to see other habitats.

    Walkers should meet at Lake Creek parking lot to leave by 9:30 a.m. or meet at the Prairie Creek Road pull-off by 10 a.m. Walkers should be back at the car by 1 p.m.

  • On July 24, the INPS plans a walk on Proctor Mountain leaving from the Hemingway Memorial along Sun Valley/Trail Creek Road. The tour won’t encompass the entire Proctor Mountain Loop but it is rated medium difficulty.

Meet at the Hemingway Memorial on Sun Valley Road at 9 a.m. and expect to be back at the car about 2 p.m.
