Our second hike. The loop was nice and easy. Going over the top wasn't tough, but it did get us breathing a little harder. Great view of the valley from the top.

I love this loop. My girlfriend and I go over the Vista trail then run around the Merkle then back over the Vista .Pretty easy.

Hiked this with my grandmother. It was perfect for her because it was completely flat and there were plenty of benches along the path so she could stop and rest when she needed to. I believe it is also wheelchair and stroller accessible, though it is not paved. Lots and lots of cacti around. Go clockwise around the loop for the best views.
