Description

Starting from Noodle Trail, Vista Trail is a stepped climb with some steeper climbing corners. Low lying foliage all the way up, with Juniper trees mixed in, leaves you in the sun a good bit. While this trail is rideable both ways, if you climb (as shown) be aware that riders coming down could have speed and as the trail weaves back and forth it is hard to see what is coming up next.

There are a couple trails that intersect Vista Trail. Juniper Gate and BLM Trail off to the south will take you deeper into the Emmanuel Pines area.

The trail ends at Javelina Trail #332 where you can either go left towards Thumb Butte or right towards Granite Mountain.
