Hike five miles round trip along the Illinois River trail to view Kalmiopsis leachiana in bloom in the Kalmiopsis Wilderness at York Creek. The Kalmiopsis Wilderness was named for these rare and beautiful flowers, first reported by botanist Lilla Leach in the 1930s. Along the way, we’ll stop to observe and learn about other endemic plants in the area and their serpentine habitat, as well as birds and a botanical history overview of the Kalmiopsis area. The class field trip involves hiking over moderate terrain, with a 500 ft. elevation gain.

We’ll meet at Siskiyou Field Institute for a brief introduction to the area, then begin our hike at the Briggs Creek trailhead (18 miles west of Siskiyou Field Institute) and head for York Creek.
