This is a first. In an article from SF Gate, the popular Wild Flower Trail has been closed indefinitely due to “overenthusiastic crowds have trampled wild flowers”. Many visitors would go off the trail to take pictures of the wild flowers, not noticing trampling over some to get their “perfect shot”.
“It’s upsetting to see the destruction,” MWD environmental specialist Alex Marks told KPCC. “‘Cause you can stand back and you can see the beauty of it without getting so close and trampling everything.”
There is not a date as to when it will open up again.
