Half of the trail is in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve which is restricted to daylight use only.

Description

The Paradise Trail connects Bell Pass Trail and Quartz Trail. The distinct singletrack is a challenge in both directions as it travels through multitudes of rock gardens and washes. Be on the lookout for clumps of cacti as you come around a few of the faster corners. If you're riding in the morning, expect to enjoy a nice cover of shade.

As a descent, riders will work through a couple of dry creek crossings before getting to a series of swoopy turns up against the mountain. On the way up, the grade starts out steadily before reaching the first of two steeper climbs.
