The .6 mile Vista trail is a point-to-point trail that goes up and over the small peak that the Merkle trail goes around. Some great views are seen from the top.

A great fun family hike. Usery Park has lots of great trails and great stops throughout to chill and have a picnic.

Vista trail is a great hike with my littles (4,2, and 10 months), especially when we need something quick. It is nice to hike over the hills and get a bit of a view, Much more vaired the the flat ground.

Small trail which cuts up over a small mountain/hill. A pretty easy hike when walking, so I recommend adding some jogging. Pretty straight forward and easy for the whole family. When at the top you will notice finger-like stones, along with a beautiful view of the area. Be sure to bring the camera.
