This walk seems to becoming a tradition as a “homeschoolers and spring break walk.” Green Hill is the Roanoke Valley’s prize when it comes to spring flowers. Drive into the park and go as far as the road will take you. There is a parking lot and a picnic pavilion there. The trail is behind the pavilion. See large flowered trillium as you’ve never seen it before. Not only are there lots of them, but some freaks of nature as well. Instead of three flowers as the name implies some have even 6 petals or more. Canada violet, toothwort, spring beauty and many others are found in great abundance. Virginia bluebells are found along the Roanoke River.

The walking is short and easy. Bring water, rain gear and sturdy shoes.

Leaders: Ellen Holtman 540-389-1514, Lou Greiner, Gail MacFarland, Connie Crites, Linda Ardrey and Linda Harrison.

Meet: 10:00 a.m. at the park as described above.
