Beautiful 15 foot high natural shrubs produce heavy sprays of showy blooms each mid-July.

Rhododendron State Park has three tiny trails which are an easy stroll through some of the state's most beautiful and natural display of wildflowers. Each mid-July visitors descend to see the delicate beauty of the 15 foot high rhododendron shrubs. The trails may be accessed from the back of the picnic area. Rhododendron Trail makes a large loop with Wildflower Trail diverting south to make a horseshoe rejoining Rhododendron Trail farther west. Some folks enjoy the small cut-thru Laurel Trail. It is located just east of where Wildflower reenters Rhododendron then exits near the completion of the Rhododendron Loop. Each trail offers an opportunity to stroll through cool shade dampened woods whereby towering oaks and evergreens have created a canopy.

Note: Access to views of Mt. Monadnock via a 2-mile trail found along the northern edge of Rhododendron Trail.
