The Paradise Falls Trail is not much of a trail. Since there was a place holder for the trail on HAZ and I had done a description of the trail for a hiking website that I used to run, I figured I’d at least provide a description to fill in the blanks.

The Paradise Falls Trail is a short trail that runs between the Tepee Trail and the Wildwood Canyon Trail. The trail is approximately 600 feet long. From the Tepee Trail the Paradise Falls Trail is all downhill. The prize when you arrive at the Wildwood Canyon Trail is that you are just above Paradise Falls.


Despite the trail’s name, the trail that ultimately takes you to Paradise Falls is the Wildwood Canyon Trail, not the Paradise Falls Trail. In all fairness, this wasn’t always this way. Several years ago trail improvements were done to both the Wildwood Canyon Trail and the Paradise Falls Trail to reduce erosion. Direct access to Paradise Falls via the Paradise Falls Trail was cut off and hikers were forced to take the Wildwood Canyon Trail for about 40 yards before reaching Paradise Falls.

    To hike
    From US 101 exit at Lynn Road and travel north to Avenida de los Arboles. The main parking for Wildwood Park is a dirt parking lot at the corner Avenida de los Arboles and Big Sky Drive. The most direct route to the Paradise Falls Trail for the parking area is to take the Mesa Trail to the North Teepee Trail. The North Teepee Trail descends to the Teepee where it intersects the Teepee Trail. Turn right on the Teepee Trail and descend to the intersection with the Paradise Falls Trail.
