Rainfall this winter and spring has been at a record high. The last time it rained that much was in 1997 and I remember one thing that stood out: wildflowers! The best time to see them is mid-March to mid-April.
Here are my favorite spots in the east bay to watch them bloom this spring:
- Mount Diablo State Park
- Sunol Regional Wilderness
- Tilden Park
- Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve
- Lake Chabot Regional Park
But honestly, I think that this year will be spectacular no matter where you will go. So don’t waste any time and plan your viewing now!
