Experience seas of golden blooms at this beautiful state park!

If Arizona is lucky enough to have a rainy winter, we will most certainly have a beautiful bloom come spring.  One of the best places to see the beautiful golden blooms is on a hike in Picacho Peak State Park.

Blooming season typically begins in mid/late February.  Length depends on temperature – if it’s a hot spring, many of the blooms fade quickly. 

There are 5 different hiking trails, all having wonderful views and wildflower gazing opportunities.  Visit the state park website for more info.

Current wildflower information can be found here.

Location: 15520 Picacho Peak Rd, Picacho, AZ 85141
