First, the rules. Your dog is welcome to join you on the hike, provided you're committed to leaving the trail as beautiful as you found it. Pick up after your pup. You'll also have to keep your dog on a leash no more than six feet long. Since you're going to be sharing this trail with everyone from fellow dog-walkers to cyclists, it's for the best!
Start your hike in the lot at Avenue de los Arboles & Big Sky Drive near Wildwood Regional Park. From there you're going to take the trailhead out of the lot and along Indian Creek Trail. This trail will lead you to Paradise Falls. The steepest elevation gains of the hike are on the way to this attraction. It's not quite all downhill on the other side, but it does get easier! This gorgeous waterfall is a sought after selfie spot on the trail! There's a small picnic area here. Since you're at almost your halfway point of the hike, it's a good idea to rest here and soak in the sights.
On the other side of Paradise Falls, you're going to look for the signpost for Wildwood Canyon Trail and Fort Trail. Take this path until you reach the entrance to Wildflower Park. In season, this park definitely lives up to its name! Cross the park to the connection to the Wildwood Canyon Parking Lot and you'll be back where you started!
The Indian Creek, Paradise Falls, Wildwood Canyon route is a pawsome trek for you and your dog!
