Hike the Sierra Vista Trail

Rate this Adventure 29 miles 500 ft gain  - Point-to-Point Trail

Added by Jean-Claude Linossi

This is a scenic 29 miles long trail. You can hike the whole trail or sections of it.

The trail follows the foothills of the Organ Mountains. The terrain is hilly but not very difficult to hike. There are some steep laces and also some sandy places. I have only hiked sections of the trail at different occasions . There are a lot of interesting plants along the trail. The trail is nice to hike at anytime of the year.
