Paradise Lake Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Ascend to one of the Marble Mountains’ most accessible lakes and relish the opportunity to hike two historic trails—the PCT and Kelsey Creek Trail—while enjoying lush wildflowers in early summer."
--Wendy Lautner, Day & Section Hikes Pacific Crest Trail: Northern California (Wilderness Press).
"Hike along Kelsey Creek and through a long wildflower meadow to colorful Paradise Lake, where you’ll have views of uniquely shaped Kings Castle, Cayenne Ridge, and other peaks in the Marble Mountains. Kings Castle looks like a rook in a chess game."
--John R. Soares & Marc J. Soares, 100 Classic Hikes in Northern California (The Mountaineers Books).
