Palm Springs Wildflowers
Viewing Locations - The
Palm Springs-South Coast Field Office offers several
great locations for wildflower viewing for those
looking for a scenic drive. 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.
