Bogs and carnivorous plants
Sep 2021 • Friends
Don’t miss this excellent natural experience! The site is right off the 101 highway and well worth the short stop

The plants are native to bog areas with blooming in may~June.

Thie carnivorous plants are amazing!

A Must Stop!
Sep 2021
This is just a tiny park with a wooden walkway that goes in a short circle through a patch of carnivorous pitcher plants. Only one like it i have ever seen. There is a small parking lot and a restroom too, it is right by the side of the highway, will take 5 minutes and you'll get some great pictures.

Easy off the road and walk down a wooden path to get the pitcher plants. Enjoyed very much seeing these odd plants.

Only need 20 minutes

Signage is good from Hwy 101. The parking lot is large. A larger RV could park there.
There were only 2 other people visiting while we were there. There's bathrooms.
Lots of signs & information boards.
The trail is very short, flat & boardwalk all the way. The plants are very nice & interesting, but it will only take you a short amount of time to see them.

Cool. I saw such plants only in the store before our visit. Very short walk from the parking lot. Strongly recommended

Amazing cobra lilies
Jul 2021 • Couples
Very short trail hike to view the cobra lilies. They are absolutely amazing to see and read about. The trail was clearly marked and easy to maneuver. Great brief stop with picnic tables if you want to have a lunch or a snack.

Nice little trail
Aug 2020 • Family
It was nice, just a short little trail that takes you on short bridges and around to see all the plants. Just a bunch of plants and trees. Would be a nice area to take photos.

Bug eating plants
Jun 2021
Had seen the site about twenty years ago with my kids. Not well marked on the maps so you have to be on the look out when north of Florence. They look like hundreds of Cobras (also called Cobra Lily) waiting for the unsuspecting bugs to crawl inside for a slowly digested death. In the nitrogen poor soils, the plants have evolved to trap the insects to get the nitrogen compounds they need.

Very Cool

This gem is just off the highway, and so worth your time to visit. The parking area is convenient, and a very short walk along the boardwalk takes you to a magical marsh where the plants thrive. Not likely a destination, it is an interesting short stop if you’re in the area.

Be Sure to See

This small coastal botanical site certainly deserves it’s special designation as a place of wonder. I never realized there were insect eating plants in colder areas like this. They usually seem reserved for the tropics. This park has a boardwalk and some platforms from which you can easily view the pitcher plants Darlingtonia californicus up close, take pictures and enjoy this unique treasure of nature.
