Cuivre River State Park

Troy, Mo. - Cuivre River State Park has rescheduled its wildflower hike to 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on April 30.

Spring wildflowers, called ephemerals, have a short blooming period. Ephemerals bloom early, taking advantage of the sunlight hitting the woodland floor before the trees leaf out. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn all about the incredible variety of wildflowers you can find at the park.

Participants should meet the park’s naturalist at the Stone Shelter parking lot for a 1.5-mile moderate-intensity but family-friendly guided hike on Frenchman’s Bluff Trail. Participants are encouraged to dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes. They should also bring a camera, water and insect repellent.

Cuivre River State Park is located at 678 State Route 147 in Troy, north of Interstate 70. For more information, contact the park office at (636) 528-7247.
