Paradise Falls

There are several trails to choose from in Wildwood Park. You can view a map here. The route I chose loops to Lizard Rock to get your exercise and then to Paradise Falls. If you want to take it easy, simply walk straight to the falls from the parking lot. Either way you will be pleasantly surprised by the beautiful falls. There is also a picnic bench by Paradise Falls which should be available if you come early enough. This trail gets a lot of visitors since it is right next to the city.
