“A steep forested trail that leads you to two beautiful lakes.”— ChewiePDX
From the west side of the lake, there is a small side trail that will lead you to campsites on the north side of the lake. The lake is pretty shallow, but is gorgeous in it surroundings.
From the lake, the trail will continue uphill, through a meadow that it full of wildflowers during the spring. Less than .25 miles from Paradise Lake, you'll reach a junction with the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail.
I recommend taking the extra 5 minutes to get to the lake for which the trail is named. From here you'll head north, right, for a few hundred feet on the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail before you reach the junction, which you'll head west, left, to reach Bluebird Lake.
