Spring has returned to western Oregon when the trillium, one of the earliest flowers to bloom, unfolds its delicate white-to-pink petals at Tryon Creek State Natural Area. Attend the Trillium Festival and take a free guided nature walk to see the flowers and learn about the ecology of the surrounding Douglas-fir forest. If you want to go it on your own, virtually any trail in the park leads to trilliums at this time of year. For a short, easy walk, take the 0.35-mile Trillium Trail, which begins just south of the nature center. It is paved and barrier free. The 1.2-mile Middle Creek Loop, which also begins at the nature center, takes you into the canyon, along Tryon Creek, and back to your starting point. There is a total of 14 interconnecting hiking trails through the natural area.
