Route Description for Paradise Meadow Trail
While not a long route, some sections of the Paradise Meadow Trail would be considered steep by your average hiker. We therefore recommend wearing a good pair of hiking shoes - your knees and ankles will thank you! In addition to the terrain, the mosquitoes along the route can become rather prolific during the springtime. As such, it is suggested that you bring bug repellent and that you wear both long sleeves and pants.
With your vehicle parked, follow the Paradise Meadow Trail as it makes its way south along the eastern shoreline of Hat Creek. Almost immediately, you will pass Hat Lake and a small meadow section. Continuing on along Paradise Meadow Trail, you will cross a branch of Hat Creek and the elevation will begin to incline gradually.
Staying on your southern heading, you will soon arrive at Paradise Meadow where scenic views of the surrounding area can be enjoyed. Once you're ready, simply backtrack your steps towards the trailhead and your waiting vehicle.
