‘Hikes’ author presenting St. Croix River Valley’s best wildflower trails

Where’s the best place in the St Croix Valley to see carpets of spring wildflowers? Prairie blossoms that pioneers found common when they arrived in the region? Rare flowers not seen elsewhere in the Upper Midwest?

I’ll tell about those and several other locales during “Best Wildflower Trails of the St. Croix River Valley,” an hour-long presentation on Thursday, April 16, at Chapter2Books in Hudson, Wis.

Each of the trails will be pulled from my bestselling book, Hittin’ the Trail: Day Hiking Trails of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, and most are within an hour’s drive of Hudson. Copies of the book and my other hiking titles are available for purchase at Chapter2Books.

The presentation starts at 7 p.m. Chapter2Books is located at 226 Locust St. in historic downtown Hudson.
