Description

Moonridge Trail, Paradise Falls, Indian Creek Loop is a beautiful route through Wildwood Reginal Park. Your dog is welcome to join you on this hike as long as they stay on leash at all times, and you commit to leaving the trail as beautiful as you found it! At three miles long with significant elevation gains, this hike is tough enough to appeal to a regular hiker, but short enough not to take all day! 

You're going to start from the parking lot at Avenue de los Arboles and Big Sky Drive. Parking is free. If the lot is overflowing, you can find street parking in the area. The first trail you're going to take is the Moonridge Trail. This will lead you form the parking lot deep into Wildwood Regional Park. You'll pass a teepee that's a permanent shade structure. This is one of two good spots on the route to stop and rest, so take advantage of it! From there, keep your eyes peeled for signs that point to Paradise Falls. 

Paradise Falls is a waterfall, and the biggest attraction in the park by far. Though the water is gorgeous, it's not approved for drinking or swimming. Admire the falls and get a picture or two before you continue on. There's a small picnic area near the base of the falls that makes up the second rest stop along the way. 

Continue on the Paradise Falls trail away from the falls. After hiking down the canyon and across a stream, you'll find the Indian Creek Loop trail. There is a bridge that can help you across the stream without geting your socks wet! Indian Creek Loop Trail is going to take you back to the parking lot! 

Moonridge Trail, Paradise Falls, Indian Creek Loop packs the parks most impressive features into an easy to accomplish hike!
