This is a short out-and-back trail. The trailhead is not marked but should be easy to follow. Your destination is the top of ridge that the vista look-out faces. The top of the ridge is covered in Agave plants so wear long pants. The vista may see quite few visitors at the vista, but you probably won't see many of them on the trail. Once you get to the ridgeline there are great views of both Molino Canyon and La Milagrosa Canyon.

The best part of this trail is that you can bring your four-legged friends. Very short, easy hike, but great views of both canyons and the city.
