VOLCANO, Calif. — Daffodil Hill in Amador County has closed indefinitely because the area’s infrastructure can’t keep up with its overwhelming popularity, the owners announced Monday.
“After the crush of visitors that descended upon our Hill this year, we came to realize that the limitation on the size of our parking areas and the inability of the local road infrastructure to handle the volume, created liability and safety concerns for everyone involved,” the owners of the 36-acre ranch said in a Facebook post.

The owners said they tried to look for solutions but that “the (narrow) roads and the Hill property infrastructure cannot be changed.”
The owners closed Daffodil Hill for the season back in April because of heavy rains.

“We are also well aware of the financial benefit the Hill has been to the many fantastic businesses in Amador County,” the owners wrote.
“Our visitors shopped in our historic towns, eaten at our outstanding restaurants, enjoyed our fabulous wineries and filled up their vehicles before heading home. This too has contributed to making this decision very difficult.”
