Secret in the South Cascades: Late-Blooming Wildflowers of Bird Creek Meadows Professional Review and Guide
"Bird Creek Meadows has one of the most splendid displays of wildflowers in Washington. You will find them everywhere—in rocky gardens, in boggy wetlands near the streams, and near cascading waterfalls.
Paintbrush, monkeyflower, penstemon, pearly everlasting, yarrow, larkspur, lupine, and a multitude of other blooms cover the meadows with a profusion of color. The wildflower loops (2.5 to 5.75 miles) can be done easily in a day, but camping overnight allows for more leisurely meandering through the meadows."
