Calipso, a treasured wildflower at Eden ValleyEden Valley Guest Ranch offers guests a diverse population of wildflowers in their native environment.  Generally, our wildflower show begins in late April and continues into late July.  Guests may hike or trail ride to see beautiful displays.  We offer narrated tours at Eden Valley either by horse or on foot.  A short drive to the Lost Lake, Beth Lake, Beaver Lake or Bonaparte area with short hikes will show wildflowers blooming a little later and provide a fun adventure for any group.

Wildflower Beginners

Naturally, average temperatures and rainfall impact the wildflower show greatly each year.  For those brand new to wildflower identification, beginning when plants are in the flower stage is easiest and most fun.
