Paradise and Paradise Inn are located in the south central region of the the park. Paradise is characterized by high meadows with profuse wildflower blooms in the summer and world-record level snow depths in the winter. Paradise has many hiking trails and is the most crowded region of the park in summer. The most famous of these trails is Skyline Trail, the subject of a separate gallery. Activities center around the Jackson Visitor Center, a nice facility, although quite incongruous with the environment.
