We went clockwise on Turnbuckle, added the Valley Vista to the peak. The .33 miles to the peak is definitely worth the view. Saw a tortoise just leisurely walking the trail, which was a nice treat. If you go right after sunrise, you will have some shade for parts of the trail.

Great hike. The final push was at the moderate or just above the difficulty lever. The loop was a very good hike and not to hard.

Fun trail! Take lots of water and good shoes, some parts are sandy and can get slippery.

I really enjoyed this hike. The bathrooms at the trailhead are very clean too. We took the extra .33 and did the harder vista valley trail - totally worth it with 360 degree views. I loved seeing the mountain views. We took our dog and she had an easy time with it. This was our first hike since moving here and we loved it. We arrived around 7:20am and the parking lot was relatively full however the trail was not over crowded. When we left at 9:40 the parking lot had less cars.
