Paradise Peak from the south Ridge.
Paradise Peak, Smokey Mountains. (Class 3). Paradise Peak is found south of the Sawtooths on between the upper reaches of the South Fork Boise River and Paradise Creek. Its seldom visited summit is an excellent vantage point for viewing a huge chunk of Idaho backcountry. Climb the peak via its south ridge. Drive on FS-303, to a saddle on the ridge just west of Paradise Creek. From the saddle climb the steep gully that leads north to the top of the south ridge. Once on the ridge, follow the ridge over several subsidiary peaks to the summit. USGS Quad: Paradise Peak
