Where are good places to hike see lots of wildflowers during the month of June?
Hiking is my most favorite outdoor activity so you have come to the right place. My favorite place to go hiking to see wildflowers, is Mary’s Peak. It is located in the Willamette Valley and I have included this website so you can further read about the area. You can read even more here and, for Pocket Guide info on wildflowers, go here. This guide can be purchased at many places in Corvallis just east of Mary’s Peak, as you can see on the website.
Also, may I suggest you check out Gathering Together Farms for lunch when you are finished with your hike. Using all local and homegrown ingredients, they are the most natural choice for a meal all grown and prepared right here in the Willamette Valley. I have enjoyed their wood fired pizzas and potato donuts myself many times. Here is their link to provide you with directions and hours they are open.
I hope this helps and please let me know if you would like further information as I know of a few hikes that include guides that teach about wildflowers along the way as well.

- We are thinking of doing a road trip through Oregon for 2 weeks in early July 2013. We’re most interested in mountain / wildlife scenery in Oregon and coastal and wine experiences. We would also like to know if it is easy to do this by motorhome rather than car? – Gill W., Cardiff, Wales.
