It’s Thursday and V day, so that means it’s Vista Trail time!  Vista is a short trail – it’s only 1/2 mile long, and I actually combined it with the Merkle Trail one evening when I was running short on time, but still wanted to hit the trails.  While anyone can hike Merke Trail – I do NOT recommend everyone to try Vista!


Vista starts off easy…


…and then turns into this.  First time I saw this I thought, ‘is this the trail?’

It was.


When you get to the top, the views are lovely.  There’s Superstition Mountains.


Looking to the west at Phoenix


There’s my car…Henry looks so much smaller up here!

Usery Mountain Regional Park labels Vista trail as moderate, and while I hiked this trail, my mother stayed down on Merkle trail and hiked that trail.  If you’re  not an older avid hiker – don’t try Vista.  Enjoy some of the other trails instead!  🙂
