Daffodil Hill closed for the season

Daffodil Hill was open for two days before heavy rain forced it to close for the season.

VOLCANO, Calif. — Daffodil Hill has closed for the season.

The seasonal attraction was open for just two days this year before heavy rainfall forced it to close for the 2019 season. That's two days more than last year as rain prevented Daffodil Hill from even opening in 2018. 

The rain that has already passed through the area left paths and parking areas slippery and hard for visitors to walk and park their cars. More rain is expected to hit Volcano over the next two weeks. 

The closure was announced on the Daffodil Hill Facebook page. 

The heavy rains that we have experienced so far this week and predicted for this weekend have, and will, damage the blooms to the point where they cannot recover. Rain is further predicted at Volcano...

"Together these factors have led the family to make the difficult decision to close Daffodil Hill for the 2019 season," the Facebook post said. "We realize that this decision will disappoint all who were planning on visiting us this year, however, the weather has dictated this decision." 

Thousands of people visited Daffodil Hill in the two days it was open this season, which apparently overwhelmed the narrow roads leading to the Amador County destination. It also created problems with parking, restrooms and the garden areas. 

The family who owns Daffodil Hill says they will take this year to plan out solutions before opening again in 2020.
