Overview

Paradise Park Loop Trail does not melt out until late June or mid-July. Access trails to this trail from the PCT #2000 or Paradise Park Trail #778 can be more challenging than the trail itself and may require a Northwest Trails Parking Pass or other viable parking pass at the trailhead.
Features: Fall Colors — Views — Wildflowers
Dogs: Leashed

Description

Paradise Park Loop Trail #757 can be accessed from either the PCT #2000 or the Paradise Park Trail #778. If you access it by climbing up Paradise Park Trail, turn right (south) at the PCT junction and go 1/2 mile to the Paradise Park Loop Trail. Head up the forested canyon, cross the stream to the other side of the canyon, and then cross it again higher up. Climb up out of that canyon to the next one and cross over the Paradise Park Trail at a higher point on the mountain. Drop into another drainage and then continue on through the meadows of wildflowers. At one point there is a large rock uphill called Split Rock. There are many campsites along this trail.

Flora & Fauna

Paradise Park Loop Trail offers fields of lupine, Indian paintbrush, alpine phlox, and many other large expanses of wildflowers amidst forests of subalpine fir and whitebark pine.
