Trail Overview

Out riding in the desert area heading back to the Twin Buttes for day's end. Again, north of the Vistancia area, this trail cuts through the desert mountains where cactuses run rampant. The views at each turn show you how the desert changes. Offset trails are all over the place from this trail, but this trail is a great place to hit to end your day.

You cannot access the trail from Vistancia anymore because of all the construction. I have heard you can still access the trail from 74, but didn’t have enough time to find out.
