Rowena Plateau Professional Review and Guide
"A beautiful heroine in Sir Walter Scott’s 1819 novel Ivanhoe, the Rowena in Oregon is a beautiful crest renowned for its wildflowers. A land of swales, vernal pools, abrupt cliffs, and incredible biological diversity due to its location in the transition zone between the wet west and arid east, from February to June the Rowena Plateau radiates with flowering beauty. The trail is short and easy but you’ll want to linger long. Just stick to the established paths so that this special preserve will continue to dazzle visitors and harbor a wide array of species."
