Paradise Park Trail #778 ist ein 13.6 Meilen langer, wenig besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Government Camp, Oregon. Er führt durch schönen Wald und vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert werden. Die Route ist am besten von Juni bis September zugänglich. Hunde sind erlaubt, müssen allerdings an der Leine gehalten werden.

Entfernung: 13.6 miles Höhenunterschied: 3,510 feet Routentyp: Hin & zurück

Boring. No views until way up. Between 0-2” of snow all the way that I went. Good for keeping in shape and spending time in the woods alone. No one else on trail 12-2 pm. Light rain 38.

We made it about 4.5 miles postholing until we were unable to go any further. You definitely need snowshoes if you want to do this trail. We opted not to because we hate them. Around 4.4 miles, a lot of fallen trees to cross over. Snow was about 18" deep. We postholed up to our knees but sometimes fell to our waists. We never made it out of the treeline unfortunately.

Great Trail, views on top, fun and diverse forrest hiking below. however about a mile of it (below the pct intersection) is covered with fallen trees, rendering it almost impassable. I only used it to descend, but oncoming hikers i met confirmed that it's impossible to get past them when going up. in case you want to do this trail, do it descending only and bring a certain degree of fitness - lots of pulling yourself up, stepping across and balancing on top of fallen trunks is required for that bit. Try to access the top bits of the trial via zigzag canyon / pct or via zig zag mountain instead of hiking up the trail until the trees are cleared. Overall, enjoyful tho. 4/5 bc i ripped my favorite hiking pants while ducking under the fallen trees.

Def major tree blockage. Otherwise a pretty trail. We decided to turn back after battling through for a quarter of a mile. Did not make it to link up with PCT.

Only reason it doesn’t get a 5 star is because yes, it is still impassible within about 1/2 a mile from intersecting with 775. Although disappointing to get so close, amazing views on the way - deep forest to canyon ridge overlooking beauty as far as the eye can see. Take Hidden Lake Trail to connect with PCT to Paradise Park Loop Trail.

DO NOT GO INTO PARADISE PARK FROM HERE!! USE THE TIMBERLINE TRAIL! IMPASSABLE DUE TO TREE FALL! My friend and I did traverse through the mess. Took about an hour to get a quarter mile!

Too many people up until Zigzag river. i thought the PCT part was sort of boring. Paradise park was gorgeous. I will definitely go back next year. Some people complained about the bugs but I brought bug spray and it wasnt that bad.

The best view of my Hood up close. The soil is very sandy at some points and has many ups and downs. Well worth it. So... it's was nice to have my dirtygirlgators.com on my shoes to keep the sand and trail out and my hiking poles made the inclines easy!

This is one of my favorite trails on Mt. Hood. The first 45 minutes are a grueling uphill climb until it levels out a little. Evergreen, rhododendron, and bear grass line the trail. Its an amazing view once you reach the cliffs looking toward lost lake and highway 26. I have seen people and horses on this trail in the heat of summer, but in very small numbers. Many people come up to this area to forage for mushrooms in the fall.

It was a nice hike. If it was busy it would have been hard to park, but no one else was there.
