This trail covers 2 different trail heads of moderate/easy category. I & my friend's started with the Dixie trail and then before taking the Great Horned Owl trail, we made it to the Dixie summit to catch the bird's eye view of the town spread across the North. Dixie trail, is crowded as ever. However by now, we had completed close to 4.5 miles of hike. Then, we took the Vista trail head to complete the other part of the trail. This was pretty interesting. May be the word was catchy - Great Horned Owl. It was less populated with bikers now and then, but not so frequently. We did not get to confront any owls as it was early in the morning. By the time we came back to the trail where we begun, it was 11.4 miles already. Good work out, to be honest. It ain't complex, for sure.
