Lovely waterfall, stunning cliffs, rolling hills, wooded stream This is a lovely hike along the banks of Indian Creek to Paradise Falls and beyond to a secluded picnic area called Skunk Hollow. From the parking lot, follow the fire road down hill, bearing right just before the bridge. Follow the road/trail along the edge of the creek until you come to the Paradise falls, then continue down stream on the fire road, crossing the stream 4 times and passing several oak shaded picnic areas. When you see the sign to Skunk Hollow, go towards Lizard rock for a few hundred feet for an easier stream crossing. At Skunk Hollow, take the Eagle Point trail to where it reconnects with the fire road upstream. Hike back to Paradise falls, then up the stairs to the fire road, following the fire road up hill to where you will see a junction with Moonridge trial. Bear right and you will be back to the parking lot. Although this trail does lots of meandering, you really can't get lost if you just go down stream, then come back upstream.

Came out and hiked this loop with my family. Nice area with tons of trails to explore. Another fun one :) GPS tracks uploaded don't reflect a 3 mile loop based on my experience. We went to the Tee Pee via the Moon Ridge Trail, then back up on the main road for 3.5 miles.

Did this hike in July. Mostly dry plants except in the creek bed. Lots of people and families. Wildwood is rather small so we did this hike with Paradise Falls and Santa Rosa trails as well. Rather hot weather with gorgeous clear skies.

I love this hike!! A good portion of it is parallel to the creek and the painted cave is nothing to write home about, but is worth taking a look at. What makes these trails so wonderful are the spectacular views and the fantastic 70 ft waterfall!

This is a great trail if you don't have enough time to make it out of the city. This trail can be take two seperate ways. One is much harder than the other. When the trail slpits if you want a more strenous hike stay left through the canyon. This will take you past the water treatment plant and a couple of creek crossings. It is very secluded through here and very beautiful. Just past the treatment plant you will start to accend rapidly switching back often, but once on the top you will be rewarded with stunning views of the Santa Rosa Valley. Then its just a leisurly walk back to the parking lot.. If you want a more peaceful walk just take a right at the fork and your on your way! Remember to bring water. It can get very hot.
