Wildflowers in the Adirondacks in May
Ampersand’s Wildflowers - Painted and Purple Trillium
A hike along the beginning of Ampersand Mountain’s trail in mid-May will offer you the chance to see over twenty species of early wildflowers. It is a popular trail for mountain climbers and has a lot of foot traffic at this time of year. The wildflowers and plants are fragile and it makes you realize how important it is to stay on the trail – particularly on mountain summits where the flora can be extremely rare. Painted and Purple Trillium are early wildflowers and many people’s favorites!
