A good, short destination just outside of the main Paradise visitors area, Myrtle Falls is a beauty.
From the Paradise parking area, you'll hike along the Skyline or Golden Gate trails heading east on the paved route for 0.4 miles. Notice the beautiful flowers that line the trail, but be sure not to pick any -- leave them for future visitors.
Myrtle Falls is reached by taking crossing a small footbridge over Edith Creek Basin and taking a left off the path, looking for the Myrtle Falls viewpoint and one of the trail’s best sights. After snapping some photos, you can press on for a longer hike, or you can rejoin the trail and continue back towards the parking area, and a half mile later you will reach the Paradise parking lot.
