“Solitude seekers appreciate this serene wooded path between the Visitor Center and Reflection Lake.”— Megan W
Carefully cross Paradise Valley Road and begin an ascent up out of the Paradise basin. After a final short, steep push you reach a densely forested saddle where the High Lakes Trail branches off heading east. Continue south through the trees, eventually arriving at open meadows and the incredibly picturesque shores of the Reflection Lakes.
Although this trail can certainly be done as an out-and-back (increasing the mileage to 3 mileage round trip) another nice option is to arrange for a ride to pick you up at the end.
