I have never seen Silly Mountain look more amazing than it does right now, it is really spectacular.

Soooo there's some work in progress on this little mountain. The mountain and surrounding area is in the process of becoming a REAL PARK! The main trail up the front is signed showing it will be closed beginning March 31, 2008. They are asking folks to reroute onto the "new" trail system during this time frame. There is already some restoration in process. Silly Mountain now has a trail system with signage at the base of the mountain showing those route and all have cute little names like "Huff n Puff". There is also decent signing along the way. Not likely that one could get lost on this little mountain but I did point a few folks in the right direction.

This used to be a quick 30 minute door to door trip for me. I think the changes could allow for an easy hour or two up there winding around the new trails. Business has picked up, too. I see no fewer than 25 cars in the parking lot at all times of the day and throughout the week. The choices of trails certainly had everyone spread out, which was a good thing.

Congrats to the folks in charge of this project, I can't wait to see how it develops.

My wildflower observation reflects mostly Brittlebush.
