It’s New Map Monday: Moonridge Trail, Paradise Falls, Two Springs Trail Loop from Wildflower Playfield Tennis Courts
- This is the prettiest way to get to the very popular 40′ high Paradise Falls
- Enjoy the beauty and tranquility of Wildwood Canyon away from crowds and dusty
- Easy short 2.9-mile loop along pretty canyon trails
- Two Springs Trail is closed to mountain bikers and equestrians because of stairs
- Includes a tunnel that passes underneath Avenida de los Arboles
This is an easy and lesser-known route along some pretty and tranquil trails where you are likely
to have the trail to yourself until you reach North Teepee Trail. This is a welcome change from
the main part of the park that can be very crowded, especially on the weekend.
From the parking lot near the tennis courts, take the tunnel under Avenida de los Arboles to get
to Moonridge Trail. You can follow it all the way to the falls, with a 0.2 mile section on (North)
Teepee Trail. After visiting the falls, continue along Wildwood Canyon Trail until you cross the
bridge then turn left (north) immediately to get onto Two Springs Trail (formerly Indian Creek
Trail). At the top, turn right back onto Moonridge, through the tunnel and back to parking. Try
hiking it in the opposite direction for a different experience!
For a slightly longer hike, start at the parking lot on Canna St. at the east end of the playfield,
shown by the green highlight on the map.
Popularity: The waterfalls are very popular and can be crowded on the weekend.
Parking: Free at Wildflower Playfields.
Distance: 2.9 miles; 3.75 miles if you park on Canna Street (green highlight on map).
Cumulative Climbing and Descent: about 500’.
