Directions to Trailhead

Paradise Point Trail is a very scenic trail; the trailhead alone is even worth a visit. Take in views of Lone Walker Mountain, Painted Tepee Peak, Sinopah Mountain, and Mt. Helen before embarking on the trail itself. Head to the beach to enjoy a picnic with views of Rising Wolf Mountain or take a kayak out to test the waters.
