Most of the Sierra Vista in this section is a wide jeep trail with occasional washes. It's a pretty easy hike with great views from the east side, but the west side of the loop veers off away from the mountains. This is the big reason for the low score. The entire west section of the loop isn't very scenic, extremely rocky and Sandy, and the only reward you get after completing the trail is...completing the trail. However, this loop would probably be excellent for mountain biking for those with some endurance and skill (There are areas with heavy sand and large washes). This (Sierra Vista) may be a nice practice section for long distance hikers, but overall, there are many EASY to MODERATE rated hikes around the area that offer betters views.
