Trailhead is across from the Paradox Lake Campground and you must paddle to it. It is hard to find from the lake- took us a little while to locate. This trail isn't used much. We had a fawn come running down the mountain past us! If you are used to worn down trails, this can be a refreshing change. It was like walking a forest that has been untouched - trails had leaves covering rocks and sticks in the way, etc. This makes footing a little more difficult. Hard to tell if you were even on the trail at times. (it is well marked, pay attention to the markers). It was a tough climb up past the pond. No view makes it a little disappointing. Ok for kids, but they were disappointed at the lack of view.
