Oxford County is home to hundreds of varieties of wildflowers and flowering shrubs and trees. Despite last week’s snowfall, dozens of them are blossoming now, including mayflowers, violets, trilliums, wild oats, and wild blueberries. There are numerous places to see wildflowers in this area. Easily accessible are the walkway on the Parkway and the hiking trails at Mt. Will and Maggie’s Nature Park in Greenwood. This park has both easy and rugged trails. Keep in mind two things when looking for wild flowers. First, some trails are still wet, muddy, and slippery. Second, leave the wildflowers where you find them. Some of them are endangered.
