Maybe you’ll have the luck of the irises. And the rhododendrons. And the azaleas.
They sometimes line much of Paradise Trail like a decked-out wedding aisle as you set out from the South Fork Road trailhead for a mile of switchbacked climbing that brings you to the eastern section of the Little Bald Hills Trail.
This isn’t the only way to get there. You could continue on South Fork Road a little less than a mile farther south and turn right onto a dicey road known as 16N23, then drive another mile to reach the actual eastern terminus of Little Bald Hills Trail.
