Tryon Creek

A lush, forested oasis in the midst of a city, this park has trails that wind up and around over bridges and a boardwalk, keeping pretty Tryon Creek in the middle. It boasts a number of wildflowers, but especially trilliums which should still be in bloom. It is likely to be muddy and maybe rainy, so bring appropriate clothing and poles.
