Paradise Valley Conservation Area

A relatively new Snohomish County park near Woodinville offers a good close-in outdoor escape. Mostly level trails loop through and around the headwaters of Bear Creek, a highly productive salmon stream within the Sammamish River Valley. Big trees and wetlands define the 793 acre wildlife area. Several miles of walking and biking trails meander throughout the site.

GETTING THERE

Drive SR-522 until to the intersection with Paradise Lake Rd. Turn east onto Paradise Lake Rd and drive 1.8 miles to the parking lot on the right. There is signage along the road once you enter the conservation area prior to reaching the parking lot.

ON THE TRAIL

The trail supports many different activities such as hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Each segment of trail is marked along the intersections with the permitted activities and in some cases the trails are one way only. Be sure to study a map prior to your hike to ensure you're using the trail as indicated.

NOTES

  • Bears have been spotted in this park so be "bear-aware" while hiking in the preserve.
  • The trail system is very level and has very few sections with noticeable elevation gain.
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Length: 3.0
