Humboldt Lily: it’s one of the most striking flowers seen in the Santa Monica Mountains. About 3 inches in diameter, up to 50 flowers on one plant, the size of a plant is up to 8 feet. After a wild fire, the plant germinates from seed, other years it sprouts forth from a bulb and its preferred habitat is near intermittent streams, although it does like some dappled sunshine. Blooming is from May to July, yearly seen on this section of the BBT.
Out & Back so you run as far out as you’d like, very nice single track for miles on end, on the famous Backbone Trail.
