Ramps in the springDuring May, ramps begin emerging in hardwood forests in bright green patches.

Ramps – other names

Ramps are also known as wild leeks, wood leeks, wild garlic and spring onions. Considered a spring delicacy, the flavour and aroma is a combination of onion and garlic.

Ramps almost readyWhile you’re hiking the trails through the caves/caverns and up to the Thunderbird Twin Zip Line at Scenic Caves Nature Adventures, keep an eye open for them in the forested areas.  Ramps have two-three bright green wide flat leaves with a maroon stem and a white bulb.

Be careful not to confuse them with Trilliums!
