Overview
This is another of the trails in the northern area of the Phoenix Sonoran Preserve. It circles the top of the eastern most hill in this section of the park and provides 360 degree views. It is reached from the Sidewinder Trail.


Hike
From the Sidewinder Trail milepost .83 (N33 46.539 W112 02.679) turn onto the Apache Vista Trail going uphill. At 0.21 miles (N33 46.395 W112 02.724) you reach a junction with the loop at which you can go either way. I went right and this description follows that direction. Soon you reach a left turn where you can see the Ridgeback Trail on the hill to the west. As you continue to turn the new Sonoran Preserve Trailhead comes into view. Now you'll be walking along the ridge and can see Apache Wash to the east. Its the low area with all the trees. Soon you turn left again and reach the high point on the trail. Continue on downhill to the loop junction where you go right to return to the Sidewinder Trail.
