Hike Description

Hike Description

Team

On the eastern edge of Paradise Point State Park, removed from the noise of I-5, a short network of hiking trails offers any visitor a little escape from the hustle-and-bustle of the city.

Departing from either the day use picnic area or the campground's walk-in campsite area, the Paradise Point Trail System explores the park's native forest dominated by western red cedars (Thuja plicata), bigleaf maples (Acer macrophyllum), and ground cover consisting of Pacific waterleaf (hydrophyllum fendleri) and western sword fern (Polystichum munitum).

Note: During the spring and early summer when water levels are their highest, the section of trail adjacent to the East Fork of the Lewis River is commonly submerged.
