While planning my second wildflower drive in Arizona last spring, I discovered Bartlett Lake. I read on several blogs the rare and lovely albino poppies appear around the lake. I was sold on making a trip to see if I could find them! And I did, with a huge smile on my face :)
The abundance of wildflowers changes each year. For an accurate and timely forecast, I recommend Wild in Arizona.
- Palo Verde Trail – a 7.4 mile, round-trip hike, offers lovely views of the lake and the mountainous desert landscape.
- Jojoba Trail – this is a shorter hiking option at 2.6 miles, round-trip. This hike has constant dips and curves as you move up and down in elevation.
- Boat Rentals – there are ample opportunities to explore the lake on a boat of your choice! Boat rentals include pontoons, skis, kayaks and paddle boards.
- Bar and Grill – there is a bar and grill located at the lake, in case you wish to stay off the water or enjoy refreshments after a day exploring the lake.
Have you visited Bartlett Lake recently? If so, I would love to hear about your experience!
