While the wildflower bloom is not as spectacular or intense as spring of 2008 due to the late rainfall, there are sections in eastern region of Riverside County that received springs rain that have not seen any significant amount since 2005. While this means you may not encounter vast carpets of wildflowers, there is a wider variety of species to look for while hiking.
