Directions: Darlingtonia is located on Highway 101, 5 miles north of Florence, Oregon. There is a large sign marking the road to turn on.
This is a very short walk but it’s well worth the stop. Darlingtonia State Natural Site is a place dedicated to the protection of the Darlingtonia plant. It’s a carnivorous pitcher plant sometimes called the cobra lily.
From the parking area get on the paved path, go right and head towards the boardwalk. It’s here that you will see all of the Darlingtonia. As you continue on the boardwalk you will pass an informational sign and circle around to the pavement again where you will head back to your car. The plants are very interesting and there are a lot of them in such a small area.
This is a great stop if you are a plant lover or need to get out and stretch your legs.
