Pacific Crest-Paradise Park Trail Junction

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

The four-way junction (Steve Hart)
Junction of Paradise Park Trail and PCT at a more frigid time of year (Jerry Adams)


This is the place where the Paradise Park Trail crosses the combined Pacific Crest and Timberline Trails near Paradise Park.

From here, the Paradise Park Trail leads up, farther into Paradise Park or down into the Zigzag Mountain trail complex. The Crest Trail leads north to the Ramona Falls area or south towards Timberline Lodge.

There are a couple possible campsites near this junction, or go about a mile on the PCT towards Ramona Falls where Lost Creek crosses the trail: here there are a couple very nice campsites.
