Mount Sutro’s summit next to the concrete benches is now beautifully green with the usual springtime grass, but I'd hoped to see more wildflowers. There's been some clearing nearby with lots of those planting flags around.
Wish they’d do more to encourage my favorite wildflowers yellow Oxalis, California poppies, yellow mustard flowers, wild radish blossoms, dandelions, and other wild blooms up here.
Noticed a trail closure where the East Ridge Trail meets the trail fork going up, then again at the East Ridge summit trailhead where they’ve added a few wood benches near the big rock.
