Spring Wild Flowers at Conkles Hollow


Spring rains have caused the creeks and falls at Conkle's Hollow in the Hocking Hills State Park system to swell and flow.

While along the trails the wild spring flowers are now growing and blooming. Many Mayapples and other native plants can be found all over the park.

There are thousands of Bluebells growing along the creek banks.

I always love seeing these beautiful blue flowers in the early spring.


Not only will you find the blue blooming violets but there are many Downey Yellow Violets growing there along the trail.

Areas of the fun looking Dutchman Breeches are now in bloom.


And in the shady areas Jack in the Pulpits grow.


Trout Lilies grow in several areas along the trail.

While in the areas where the sun reaches the Golden Ragwort plants are growing and now starting to bloom.

Giant White Trilliums are blooming on the banks and rocks all over the hollow.

It is a beautiful time to visit the parks to see some of the wild flowers now in bloom.



  1. I enjoyed that stroll through the blooms in the park. Everything is getting so pretty. Hope you are having a good day.

  2. The flowers in your local park is stunning; and the birds are a treat!

  3. Hi Lona, I love your garden blog but I must admit it's a wonderful change to leave the garden and visit the wonderful countryside. I will put this area on my bucket list. cheers, catmint

  4. I remember when I first saw yellow violets in the Swiss forests, thirty something years ago. Felt quite indignant. EVERYONE knows that violets are violet, that is their name after all! Enchanting little flowers.

  5. makes me want to get out in the woods and see what's blooming around here.
