You don't even have to read this post to find out the trail is 9.6 miles round trip, how do you like that?
Of course the Yellow Lady Slippers were everywhere in Peninsula State Park (I had to go back and correct the spelling AGAIN) but there was other stuff blooming too.
There's more to see than wildflowers, you can even stop at Eagle Bluff lighthouse. It was closed for the day when we got there, and the trail down the cliffside was closed as well or we would have walked down. Trust me, I craned my neck all over that place looking for a way down there!
We also drove around the campground while at the park and picked out the section we'd have to reserve if we wanted to camp here in the future. That's debatable because the turns are tight, but the spots we were looking at were within walking distance of the kayak launch spot...
Hawk Weed is one of my favorite invasives, and it was as plentiful as the Lady Slipper. Hawk Weed goes to seed pretty quickly, so enjoy it when you see it blooming because it doesn't last too long.
I'm terribly out of shape for bike riding but this ride is doable even for the novice and there is a lot to see. It also swings through some other sections of the park giving you a nice overview of the area. As I've mentioned before I'd love to come back to the area in the fall, and I'm sure this state park is gorgeous in early October. No matter when you go, take as many breaks as you need and enjoy the ride!
