Here is a page with a map of all the trails on Monte Sano. The map is color coded for quick awareness of where one is.

This map shows the trail names but is also colored so the trails are visually distinct. The western side of Monte Sano uses signs instead of color blazes on the actual trails.


There are a number of different wildflowers that grow on Monte Sano. Some flower for a few days and some flower for months durind the different seasons of the year. Here are several pages to help identiy the flowers by their common and scientific names. This is probably not a totally inclusive representation of all the flowers.  Click on the Flowers Menu up above to see flower photos and to be able to identify Monte Sano wildflwoers.
