Paradise park begins at Timberline Lodge and traverses west on the timberline trail. We drop steeply into and out of Zig Zag canyon, then up into alpine meadows with great wildflower displays below Mt. Hoods southwest face. We will have lunch there and return via another connector a little further west back to the timberline trail. Along with the mountain vistas and wildflowers, the route passes several waterfalls and has views south and west of Mount Hood. The trail can be busy on weekends, so we will start early. Meet at the MMC for carpooling, or alternately, meet us at timberline lodge (contact leader).
