(Nature) – Spectacular wildflowers bloom in more than three acres of land owned by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife in what in 2003 was designated as an ecological reserve at Table Mountain, seven miles North of Oroville.
To the hundreds of visitors that come from near and far every year, this is just our planet and its magnificence.
A group of us went on a Sunday hike organized by the Chico-Oroville Outdoor Adventurers (COOA) via meetup.com and as usual, it was a great opportunity to be out in nature and share the experience with others, perhaps making new friendships.
Actually, it was all about the Golden Poppies, Lupines, and other wildflowers.
Here are just a few snapshots intending to show just a little bit of this place so that when people go they can see it all for the first time.
How to get there:
Butte County. Approximately 7 miles north of Oroville
Directions: From Hwy 70 in Oroville. Exit at Grand Ave (Exit 48). Go East (right) on Grand Ave for 1 mile. Left on Table Mountain Blvd for a tenth of a mile. Right on Cherokee Road 6.3 miles north to the reserve. The official access is via a small parking lot on the west side of Cherokee Road.
