Wildwood Park: Paradise Falls – Santa Rosa Valley Loop

With two waterfalls, scenic volcanic outcroppings, a variety of hiking trails, several pleasant picnic areas, and abundant open space, Wildwood park is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the nearby city.

 

Some of the highlights along the way:

Mont Clef Ridge

Santa Rosa Valley

Box Canyon

Lizard Rock

Skunk Hollow

Paradise Falls

Indian Creek

And would you believe it, a train?

[Note: the following is from an old hike. Some parts have changed a bit. I’ll eventually update with more recent pics…stay tuned]

You don’t see this on the usual Wildwood hike – an old barn. We’ll  pause here and maybe even play on some old farm equipment

Group Factoid: Over six years ago we were the first and only group to connect the upper Santa Rosa trail with the Lower Santa Rosa trail by marching down grass covered slopes. Since then an official trail has been built in the same location named the Shooting Star trail

Here is a creek fed by Paradise Falls. There will be a couple of creek crossings on this hike. Nice, huh?

Lizard Rock – Our first break spot. There will also be restrooms  later along the way at Sycamore Flats


There are two waterfalls in Wildwood Park. Here is Indian Falls. Lots of people walk right by this one without even noticing. We won’t!


All aboard!!!!!!!!!
