Start off on the Dark Hollow trail and keep a sharp eye for the start of this trail on the right. If you reach the pond, turn around and go back 1/4 mile, this is the start of Paradise.
Paradise starts off mellow with a swift grade through small meadows. after the large scree slope the grade steepens and enters densely wooded singletrack. The moist soil promotes a good amount of leafy undergrowth that, at times, hangs over the trail and hides obstacles. There are a couple of stream crossings and a short section of steep, rocky, rooted stream on the trail.
At the end, Paradise rejoins Dark Hollow. At this point continue ahead to the right.
