“A nice run up to Vista Point offering great views.”— John McKinney
Parking fees are $3 per vehicle daily.
This run is in mountain lion territory-use caution.
Here, the trail steepens considerably. Follow Mustard Road for about a half mile before turning right onto Vista Lookout Road. At 2.4 miles, you reach Vista Point, enjoy the great views of southern Orange County. To return, head back the way you came.
Thanks to John McKinney, The Trailmaster, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about trails in California, check out his guides at The Trailmaster Store.
While you'll likely see typical animals indigenous to the region, it is unlikely you'll see a mountain lion; however, the park makes clear that this is mountain lion territory and users should practice caution while in the park.
