I had a wonderful hike from the Trail Kiosk to Paradise trail, around that loop, and back. I did, however, mistake some creek runoff for the actual creek. I made a wrong turn and ended up making the loop at the far west end of the trail twice. I saw a beautiful owl and many deer including a buck with a very impressive rack. I enjoyed the hike a lot, but it was about a mile too long. If I hadn't made that wrong turn, it would have been nearly perfect.
