Day Hikes  2009 - Paradise Park  [52]

2009 - Paradise Park

During a few weeks every year wildflowers can be found in abundance at numerous high alpine meadows around Mount Hood . My personal favorite is Paradise Park. I have been to this area a number of times over the years, but my favorite is still the early August day hike I made in 2009. The weather was great and the wildflowers spectacular. My route was a balloon hike from Timberline Lodge taking the PCT and Paradise Park Loop Trail #757.
