Paradise is a short connector trail, linking the Gateway trail area with the McDowell Mtn. Ranch trails (Quartz and Taliesin), and if you continue, linking you up with the Lost Dog trail area at the south end of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. The trail can be ridden either direction, but northbound is more difficult with the climbing involved. The southern half of Paradise follows a large natural wash, adding some rocks and flash flood hazards to the ride.
