  • candy mountain trailhead 71004 East 669 PR Northeast Richland, WA, 99352 United States (map)

Walking through stands of big sage surrounded by native bunch grasses, you’ll encounter a native rock buckwheat along with its cousin, snow buckwheat, punctuated by clumps of violet wooly-pod milk vetch, yellow desert parsley and plenty of “salt and pepper” biscuitroots in bloom. 

The Candy Mountain Trail has recently been improved as well as a new parking lot at the trailhead. Meet: 10:00 a.m. Candy Mountain Trailhead.  Dress appropriate for the weather, bring snacks, and don’t forget your cameras.  Please contact trip leader Gretchen Graber at if you plan on attending.
