Wildflowers of the Desert Foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains

Course Number: BPSC X421.1


1.5 units

The north slope of the San Bernardino Mountains holds many surprises for the botanical explorer. Visit the best areas to view and inspect the wildflowers of this region, some of which are rare and endemic. Search for wildflowers such as scarlet milk-vetch, Mojave ghost flower, desert bells and various cacti. The route follows old trails of the Serrano Indians and the botanical explorer, John C. Fremont. Along the way, explore ghost towns, old mines and historic Indian sites and gain an appreciation for this little-traveled area between mountain resort communities and Joshua Tree National Park.
