Day Hike - Paradise Area Trails

Wildflowers, 7.5 miles, 2000', the route is in the leader's notes.

  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 7.5 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,000 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 7,000 ft
  • Pace: 1.5-2.0 while hiking, not counting photos, gawking, etc., no maximum

9:00 AM at Paradise,  exact location TBD 

I have no maximum speed, those in front must stop every 30 minutes and at every trail junction. I encourage participants to take in, photograph, and enjoy the hike. 

The most likely route is seen in the screen shot, around 7.5 miles, 1950'. Going clockwise, we will stay  as far away from the madding crowds as we can and almost entirely off of the paved trails. There will be wildflowers!
