  • Wildwood has a variety of trails. Being from Florida and visiting family in TO, we enjoyed the Paradise Falls loop one day. Another day we started from the parking lot near the main road and took off ...  more »
  • We love to hike here. Many different trails and sights. Never disappointing. It can get crowded and you actually can take a trail all the way to PCH. Will be back.  more »

  • I went today with my boys and it was awesome ! I couldn’t see and hike all of the trails on one day but will definitely come back again. So much to see and it was beautiful. You can take your children, dogs, bikes, etc. Bring snacks and water for those nature hikes as it will definitely bring an appetite. Also, a walking stick is a good idea for those declines and incline hikes. Park at the other side of the main parking lot as it’s closer to all hiking trails including paradise falls which is a water fall. Good luck !
  • All of the trails here are awesome. They're well kept and clean. I really enjoy the Butte Canton trail, but be prepared as it is 6 miles and very hilly. There is the much easier lizard rock trail here as well, and of course the very popular paradise falls which, while it is nice, is always incredibly busy.
  • Waaayyyyyy too crowded and not terribly interesting. Go to one of the other 999 area trailheads, like los Roblès trail or Lang Ranch.
  • Many hiking trails to enjoy. Good parking area.
  • It's my backyard I love the wildlife that live in there. This is real these peacocks come out once or twice every two weeks and walk down our street. Very cool Now the tarantula's on the other hand me no like! Lol but they want nothing to do with you if you just ignore them. This dude here strolled right in the backyard from Wildwood park and left as soon as we saw him
