Sylvan Loop Professional Reviews and Guides
"After a long climb, the top of the Sylvan Trail opens onto rolling slopes where wildflowers raise their colorful heads in salute to the sun. The sight, especially in spring, will make you forget that you are exercising. The list of native and endangered flowers that bloom on the upper slopes of Edgewood County Park and Preserve is impressive. Farewell-to-spring, yellow and clay-colored Mariposa lilies, sticky monkey flower, Ithuriel’s spear and Franciscan onion, globe lily and tidy tips, blue dicks and buttercups . . . check out the postings on the billboard in the parking lot and the labeled plantings at the park entrance to get some idea of what you’ll encounter on your trip into the preserve."
