At 9,037 feet, Mount Eddy is the highest peak in the Klamath Mountains. Be prepared to be enchanted by its dazzling botanical treasures, as well as beautiful lakes and meadows, while hiking to its summit. The serpentine habitat is home to an extraordinary amount of wildflowers – including some that are found nowhere else in the world, like Mt. Eddy skypilot, and oddballs such as California pitcherplants. As a bonus we’ll get to see a plant that was, until recently, unknown to science!
Participants will be given a virtual introduction, along with a comprehensive plant species list for the Mt. Eddy area, 2 days prior to the hike (registration for online portion only is available).
*The hike is considered strenuous at nearly 12 miles round trip with a 2,400 foot gain in elevation.
*Covid-19 protocols in place. Masks must be worn for all in-person courses.
