Oregon spring trails can lead you through rows of colorful tulips or to sunny wildflower meadows.

The race to discover what’s in bloom with each new week is part of what makes the season so special. You’ll unexpectedly notice the first cherry blossom or trillium bloom, and suddenly the blankets of bright colors will be everywhere: tulips, peonies, irises, dahlias, lavender, rhododendrons, roses and more.
